泰国军队封锁曼谷商业区 Thai Forces Seal Off Bangkok Business District

19 April, 2010

星期一,全副武装的泰国安全部队在曼谷市中心部分地区设置铁丝网,以阻止红衫军抗议人士在曼谷的金融中心举行反政府集会。
 
军方发言人星期一说,泰国军队已准备使用武力阻止抗议者在市隆大道商业区举行游行。
 
政府宣布禁止红衫军抗议者进入市隆大道。红衫军已经占领了附近的一个购物区,他们试图推翻泰国总理阿披实和迫使政府举行新的选举。
 
抗议者的一位国际发言人说,红衫军取消了原定于星期二举行的大规模游行。他没有透露红衫军是否计划在市隆大道商业区游行,还是在附近他们已经占领的购物区举行集会。

Heavily armed Thai security forces laid razor wire across parts of central Bangkok on Monday to block Red Shirt protesters from taking their anti-government campaign to the city's financial hub.
 
An army spokesman said Monday that Thai troops are prepared to use force to stop the protesters from marching on the Silom Road business district.
 
The government has declared the Silom Road district off-limits to the Red Shirt protesters who have occupied a nearby shopping area in their bid to oust Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva and force new elections.
 
The international spokesman for the protesters says the Red Shirts have called off a massive march set for Tuesday. He did not say whether the Red Shirts had planned to march on the Silom Road business district or rally at the nearby shopping district they already occupy.
