   BANGKOK (AP) — Bangkok's emergency services center says 22 people were injured when an explosion hit marching anti-government protesters in the capital.
   Protest spokesman Akanat Promphan said the movement's leader, Suthep Thaugsuban, was in the procession Monday but was not wounded.
   Akanat said an explosive device was thrown into a truck driven by demonstrators that was several dozen meters ahead of Suthep.
   Protesters trying to oust Yingluck Shinawatra have marched peacefully across the capital this week.
   But small acts of violence have been reported nightly at protest venues, which have been targeted in shooting attacks and with small explosives hurled at the homes of top supporters.

 BANGKOK (AP) - Thai police say an officer has been killed in clashes between security forces and anti-government protesters in the capital.
   Police spokesman Anucha Romyana says the officer died Thursday after being airlifted to a hospital.
   It's unclear how the officer died, but police said earlier that an officer had been struck by a bullet during the clashes.
   The clashes took place outside a Bangkok sports stadium where candidates were gathering to draw lots for their positions on the ballot ahead of general elections scheduled for Feb. 2.
   At least 60 people were injured in the daylong unrest.
   The protesters are seeking to topple the government and prevent the elections from taking place as scheduled.

Thai protesters resume siege of PM's offices

   BANGKOK (AP) — Anti-government protesters in Thailand's capital have resumed their tactic of besieging government offices, cutting off electricity to the prime minister's office compound and demanding that police abandon the premises.

   The protesters, who are seeking to force the replacement of caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's government before a Feb. 2 election, threatened Thursday to force their way in if police don't leave.

   In a previous confrontation, police withdrew from the compound to allow the demonstrators in without a fight. That withdrawal came after two days of increasingly violent standoffs.

 PATTANI, Thailand (AP) - Officers say four marines have been killed when a homemade bomb exploded as they were inspecting it at a base in Thailand's insurgency-plagued south.

   Capt. Somkiat Ponprayun says the Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit believed they had defused the device, which was found Monday along a road in Bacho district in Narathiwat province.

   He says officers also found a banner with a message against ongoing peace talks between the government and the insurgents.

  Somkiat said the marines took the bomb to their base to study it, and it then exploded. He said it may have had a second triggering device.

   Four marines were killed and six others were injured in the blast.

   More than 5,000 people have been killed in Thailand's three southernmost provinces since an Islamist insurgency erupted in 2004.
