Bangkok clashes death toll climbs to 20

At least 20 people are now known to have died in clashes between Thai troops and opposition supporters in Bangkok, and more than 800 were hurt.

The worst violence came when soldiers and police made an unsuccessful attempt to retake an area held by opposition supporters on Saturday evening.

A government spokesman denied reports that live rounds had also been fired.
