'Silencing' Thai opposition

Red Shirt supporters say their radio stations are being shut down by police ahead of elections.


    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.
