A suspected car bomb has killed one person in Bangkok, as tensions rise in a long-standing political crisis.
The blast occurred quite near the parliament building, where anti-government protesters are trying to block top officials from leaving.
Earlier in the day, police fired teargas to disperse the protesters, injuring at least 65 people.
They are members of the People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD), a group that wants to replace the one-man, one-vote system with a system in which some of the representatives are chosen by professions and social groups rather than the general electorate.
Troops have been deployed on the streets of the Thai capital Bangkok after police failed for a second time to disperse anti-government protesters.
Protesters have been gathered outside the parliament building trying to stop the Prime Minister, Somchai Wongsawat, from leaving.
Mr Somchai has been holding emergency talks with military commanders on how to resolve the stand-off.
