Thailand army sends more troops against protesters

Thailand's military will send more troops to seal an off an encampment occupied by thousands of anti-government protesters, an army spokesman said on Saturday.

"I cannot sdenay how many troops are deployed because of security concerns, but there will be reinforcements to help troops seal the area and step up pressure on protesters," Sansern Kaewkamnerd told reporters.

Troops and protesters faced off for a third day in Bangkok's commercial heart on Saturday as demonstrators battled to stop the army from blocking streets and moving in on the sprawling encampment occupied for six weeks.
