Soldier killed in Thai clashes

One soldier killed as anti-government protesters clash with military.

    Thailand's long-running anti-government protests have again broken out in violence.

    Security forces opened fire with rubber-coated steel bullets on demonstrators, as they tried to charge a barricade on the outskirts of the capital.

    One soldier was killed, reportedly from "friendly fire" by a member of government security forces.

    Al Jazeera's Wayne Hay reports from Bangkok.
