BANGKOK, (Xinhua): Twenty people have been injured in a bomb explosion in Bangkok on Friday, said the Erawan Emergency Center of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration.

Eight anti-government protesters were earlier reported to have been hurt by the explosion.

An unknown assailant threw a bomb from a three-story building at a procession of protesters, security guards of the anti- government People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) were quoted by the Nation newspaper as saying.
