Thai General Khattiya Sawasdiphol was shot yesterday before a crowd of reporters and protesters in a busy street in Central Bangkok. The general, who broke ranks with the government in support of the protesters, remains in critical condition.

    Thomas Fuller, reporter for our partner The New York Times, was there when the general was shot, interviewing him. He joins us with the latest details on the general they call “Seh Daeng” or "Red Commander."
