#AceWorldNews says that a Thai policeman was shot dead as security forces clashed with protesters during a raid to reclaim besieged government buildings in Bangkok Tuesday.

“One policeman was shot dead and four injured,” Police Lieutenant General Prawut Thavornsiri told AFP. One of the casualties was seriously injured by shrapnel from a blast.

A total of 44 people were hurt, according to the city’s Erawan emergency medical centre.

Demonstrators rejected a police demand to leave the area around the prime minister’s offices within one hour.
