 Tanks crossing the barricade into the protesters' camp, BangkokTanks crossing the barricade into the protesters' camp, Bangkok

As of about 8.30am this morning, and after several hours of early morning fighting, tanks have crossed the protesters' tire and bamboo barricade near Lumphini Park to. This is significant, but it still remains to be seen what will happen, and I continue to hear gunshots and explosions as I write this.
