    Opposition "Red Shirt" supporters in Thailand say they are being silenced ahead of an upcoming general election.   

    Police have reportedly closed down several anti-government radio stations for "lacking licenses or permits to broadcast".

    But activists say the only stations targeted were ones run by Red Shirt supporters.
