AN Associated Press photographer has seen three foreign journalists shot during the army operation in central Bangkok, and says one appears dead.
The photographer saw the three at a hospital today, a few hours after the crackdown began to clear an anti-government protest site in central Bangkok.
He said one of the journalists, who looked Middle Eastern, was shot in the chest. He showed no signs of life.
The photographer said a Dutch journalist walked into the hospital with a bullet wound in his shoulder.
The third journalist was a Westerner in his late 40s, who was shot in the leg.
The photographer also saw at least seven Thais brought to a hospital. It was not clear if they were dead or unconscious.
