An explosion and gunfire rang out near a sprawling anti-government protest site in the Thai capital early on Tuesday, the latest in the series of such incidents on the fringes of opposition rallies.

Weeks of unrest, in which protesters have barricaded several Bangkok intersections, have been interrupted by occasional bombs and gunfire, with one blast killing a woman and a young brother and sister in a shopping district on Sunday.

So far, security forces have been unable to identify those responsible for the blasts or their ultimate intentions.
