    Who are these people?

    Redshirts presumably, but was this the 'safehouse' temple that the redcross and authorities were going to move all the women and children to from the rajaprasong protest site?

    It sounds like most of the people were shot outside the temple and died within its grounds.

    Australian reporter hides out in Bangkok temple | The Australian

    AUSTRALIAN photojournalist Steve Tickner was last night taking refuge in a temple less than 100m away from the heart of the deadly protests between Red Shirts and the Thai military in Bangkok's retail centre. Tickner spoke to The Australian last night as the sounds of gunfire and heavy explosions continued in the background.
    He said, "a stream of dead and wounded" were finding their way to the temple in which he took cover with more than 2000 Red Shirt supporters and three British journalists.

    PM pledges independent probe into killings inside Pathum Wanaram Temple

    Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva Sunday pledged to have an independent panel probe the killings inside the Pathum Wanaram Temple Wednesday evening.

    Speaking during his weekly TV programme, Abhisit said six people were killed inside the temple at around 6 pm to 7 pm, hours after the troops had halted the operation to besiege the Rajprasong rally zone.

    The prime minister said troops had no plan to break up the rally at Rajprasong.

    But troops simply wanted to pushed back protesters from Saladaeng Intersection to the Salasin Intersection.

    He said the red-shirt leaders announced the end of the rally at 1 pm Wednesday after troops successfully pushed back protesters to the Salasin Intersection.

    I hope it's a different panel that probed into the Rohingya refugee abuses.

    So many human rights abuses, so few skilled investigators, so little will to actually follow through with empty promises of full investigations.

    It'll be the same panel that investigate Tak Bai at length - that should satisfy you, right?

    According to an article in Matichon , some of the bodies were brought into the temple for ' safe keeping ' since in the past , corpses that are collected by the military are usually taken away and not seen again.

    The caption reads: Stationed until morning - The picture taken at around 8 am on May 20 which shows that the soldiers stay on the BTS rail route in front of the Pathumwanaram Temple. Meanwhile the team of police, interior officials and Public Health ministry inspected the dead bodies of 6 people. Witnesses insisted that the bullets came from the direction of the rails.

    The caption reads: Loss - The facial expression of parents of Kamonked Akharn and father of Mongkol Khemthong, volunteer rescuers who both died in the shooting attack at Pathumwanaram Temple on May 19 in the evening. The PM sent a flower wreath for the funeral. The cousins of the deceased did not show the flower wreath from PM in front of others at the ceremony. A source says that the family wanted to avoid political conflicts or had private reasons for this.

    No, but it is interesting you mention Tak Bai as the same general that helped perpetrate Tak Bai was also perpetrating the human rights abuses against the Rohinyga under the Abhisit administration, and his unit, the ISOC, was allowed to investigate its own actions. Much like the fox guarding the hen-house dafty.

    A vicious circle of paradoxical contradictions and flowery rhetoric....Thai politics and familial loyalties. It's alright for them, but not for us - it's alright for us, but not for them.

    Which is undoubtedly what will be confirmed eventually - of course, won't deter the usual hate mongers and conspiracists from changing their tune.

    Several people were shot inside the grounds of the Wat, including two paramedics that died. They were wearing prominent Red Cross signs and were not politically aligned with the UDD. Whatever the Army and government might have condoned, I doubt they would condone this act of terror. Lets hope the full details come out in the investigation.

    it's also possible that the red terrorists used the temple as a shooting point, and therefore were taken out from there.

    Typical, use a temple and human shield to shoot at soldiers, didn't they find a huge stash of weapon in the temple ?

    What does this have to do with soldiers sniping paramedics, duly and prominently marked as such?

    And yes, Wats are compounds- the only difference between being inside a Temple building and being in the Wat grounds is that bullets cannot penetrate a building. The same religious laws of refuge and sanctuary apply.

    right, so that gives the reds the right to shoot from the temple or the compound as you put it ?
