Three protesters are injured when Thai police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at a Bangkok rally, as coronavirus cases soar and anger builds about Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha’s handling of the pandemic. For the third day in a week, protesters and police clashed on Friday, while the kingdom grappled with its worst virus outbreak so far and registered a new daily high of 23,418 infections.
