Thai red-shirted protest leader arrested

TWO Thai red-shirts leaders claimed that Arisamun Pongruangrong, who led protesters to disrupt the ASEAN summits due to be held in Pattaya, Thailand yesterday, has been arrested, according to The Nation's website today.

Bangkok police later confirmed Arisamun has been arrested for inciting protesters disrupting the summits and violating the Constitution.

The leaders said that Arisamun is detained at the Border Patrol Police headquarters, where a group of red-shirted protesters assembled, demanding police release Arisamun within three hours, a source told Xinhua.

Arisamun's arrest came after Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva vowed this morning in a weekly address to the nation that he would take legal action in a couple of days to punish those responsible for disrupting the ASEAN summit and related summits.
