BANGKOK - Dozens of Thai opposition rioters attacked a bus filled with government supporters on Saturday, as tensions erupted over rallies aimed at toppling premier Yingluck Shinawatra.

"Dozens of anti-government protesters are attacking a bus with paving stones and other plastic chairs, there are people in the bus," said an AFP photographer at the scene, adding that the bus was later able to drive away. There were no immediate reports of injuries.

The violence, which broke out at a rally for pro-government Red Shirt supporters, comes as weeks of opposition protesters vowed a final push in their demonstrations.
