Thai Army says grenades missing
Bangkok: About 30 rocket-propelled grenades have gone missing from a military base in Thailand, officials said on Monday, raising fears of fresh violence.
Army Chief Anupong Paojinda said a forensic investigation was underway to try to find those responsible for the disappearance of the weapons at the base in central Lopburi province this month.
A series of grenade blasts have hit Bangkok in recent weeks, as the capital remains under emergency rule following mass "Red Shirt" protests in April and May that left 91 people dead in clashes between troops and demonstrators.
Officials said it was unclear whether the apparent theft of the grenades was linked to the unrest.
The Reds -- who held peaceful gatherings yesterday to mark the anniversary of the 2006 coup that ousted their hero Thaksin Shinawatra as premier -- deny any involvement in the grenade blasts.
Thai authorities are also struggling to quell a six-year insurgency in the country`s Muslim-majority southern provinces.
