An explosion in Bangkok has killed at least one anti-government protester and wounded more than 20, reports say.

The pre-dawn blast rocked an area where demonstrators had gathered in the city’s Government House compound.

Protesters from the ç (PAD) group have occupied the area since late August.

They are demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Somchai Wongsawat’s government, saying it is too close to ousted former PM Thaksin Shinawatra.
