For almost a decade, Thailand has been trapped in a bloody conflict between supporters and opponents of tycoon turned politician Thaksin Shinawatra. Thaksin's opponents began a shutdown of Bangkok on January 13, bringing the capital to a standstill.
After weeks of relative calm, protests took over Bangkok once again this weekend, with tens of thousand of people marching through the city calling for the downfall of the government.
Violence on the eve of Thailand's election unfolded near a shopping center 30 minutes from Bangkok.
Election day did nothing to quell the rage of anti-government protesters.
After months of relatively peaceful demonstrations and a week of massive anti-government rallies, protests in Bangkok have turned violent.
It doesn't look like the latest round of protests is going to change anything.
