An anti-government protester has been killed and two injured in a gun attack in the Thai capital Bangkok, according to the Associated Press.
The incident early today close to a protest site will hasten fears that the country's political crisis could lead to a serious outbreak of violence.
The Erawan medical centre said a 31-year man was killed with wounds to his torso.
Protesters are seeking to topple prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra ahead of elections scheduled for February 2.
