Thai 'Red Shirts' mark deadly 2010 crackdown

Thousands rally in Bangkok on second anniversary of protests that left 90 dead and 2,000 injured.

    Thousands of people in the Thai capital, Bangkok, have marked the second anniversary of a government crackdown on the so-called 'Red Shirt' protesters that occurred in 2010.

    The state-ordered military crackdown led to the deaths of 90 people and left another 2,000 injured.

    A group representing the demonstrators in the 2010 crackdown is waiting for a ruling from the International Criminal Court on whether the court will hear a case against those allegedly responsible for the protesters' deaths.
