BANGKOK, Dec. 3 (Xinhua) -- Anti-government protestors were allowed on Tuesday to enter the compound of the Metropolitan Police Bureau in the Thai capital Bangkok two days after their failure to take up the police headquarters due to police resistance.
Police removed barriers outside the bureau for protestors to go inside.
Earlier in the morning, Bangkok police chief Khamronvit Thupkrajang said protestors were welcome to stay inside the police headquarters indefinitely.
Khamronvit told the police not to fire tear gas and water cannon on protestors, saying he would not want to see protesters killed or injured.
The protest leader Tavorn Senniem declared victory following the permission to enter the police bureau, saying protestors will not enter the compound but demonstrate outside.
Latest figures from the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration's Erawan Health Emergency Centre show that as of 7 a.m. Tuesday, 119 people were injured in Monday's clashes between police and protestors trying to seize the Government House.
