Two people suffered gunshot wounds as violence broke out at anti-government protests in the Thai capital on Saturday, emergency officials said.

One student was shot in the thigh and another man was shot in the back, according to an official at the Panya General Hospital where they were taken for treatment.

The circumstances were unclear but the shootings came after a mob of opposition protesters attacked government supporters travelling to a rally at a Bangkok sports stadium in a show of support for embattled Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.
