Anti-government protesters massed in the Thai capital Saturday vowing to keep up their fight to topple the government, a day after a bomb attack on their rally that killed one and wounded dozens.Tensions in Bangkok soared following the blast, the latest bloodshed in weeks of demonstrations aimed at forcing Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra from office and derailing February 2 elections.Suthep was nearby when the explosion tore through Friday's march as protesters neared a busy intersection in the shopping district of the city.The capital's Erawan emergency centre said the blast left one dead and 37 injured, with 11 remaining in hospital.An official from the centre said the injured protester died of his wounds early Saturday.Authorities said some two thousand protesters were briefly permitted to rally in the grounds of the national police headquarters on Saturday calling for officials to arrest those responsible for Friday's attack.
