Anti-government clashes in Thailand are escalating. The battle of middle-class citizens and royalists against poorer and more rural Thai citizens has exploded in Bangkok. On Tuesday, two protesters and one police officer were killed and 60 people were injured. More than 100 protesters were detained. At the same time, the National Anti-Corruption Commission announced that Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, the object of much of the anti-government ire, will be facing corruption charges for a controversial rice-buying scheme. In total, 14 people have been killed in the most recent set of protests and thousands have been injured.
