BANGKOK: Thousands of Thai 'red shirts' attended the cremation yesterday of a renegade general who was shot in the head last month during mass anti-government street protests.

Police said up to 10,000 red shirts turned up at the cremation of Major-General Khattiya Sawasdipol, better known as Seh Daeng, at a temple close to the heart of Bangkok's government district.

It was the biggest gathering of red shirts since their mass rally ended on May 19 with a bloody army crackdown on their encampment in the capital, which is still under emergency laws banning public gatherings of more than five people.
