Bangkok Stock Exchange on fire a few hours ago…

From a Slugger reader. The government’s curfew kicks in shortly at 8pm local time. Gunfire is being heard in various parts of the city. Shops, banks and most other forms of commercial life have closed. The current expectation is that the trouble will die down by the morning. The protesters’ leadership appears to be split between moderates and hard liners. And trouble is flaring in other parts of the country.
