Nine others were also injured during election related violence as protesters blocked polling stations as advanced voting took place in the capitol city. Bangkok Shutdown has been in effect for two weeks as the anti-government protesters continue to block major intersections. The Thai government imposed a 60-day state of emergency in Bangkok and the surrounding provinces in an attempt to cope with the on-going political turmoil but so far this decree has had no effect on the mass protests.
