Thai nationalists launch protest against government policy in land dispute with Cambodia

BANGKOK — Thailand’s capital is bracing for a new round of street
protests by nationalist groups that claim the government fails to
safeguard disputed territory along the border with neighbouring
Cambodia.
About 350 people gathered Tuesday for the start of a
rally by the so-called People’s Alliance for Democracy — also known as
the Yellow Shirts — the same group that in 2008 occupied the prime
minister’s offices for three months and took over Bangkok’s two
airports. An associated fringe group, the Thai Patriots Network, has
been protesting on the same nationalist theme since earlier this month.
The
protest has been overshadowed by the arrest Monday of five men who
allegedly were planning to set off bombs to disrupt the demonstrations.
