Thai troops fired at protesters in a third day of fighting that has killed 17 people on Bangkok's streets as soldiers struggle to isolate a sprawling encampment of demonstrators seeking to topple the government. Anti-government protesters set up new barricades in part of Bangkok, using tyres piled up to create a road block while some red-shirts seized water trucks. Bangkok residents living in an area sealed off by the army needed to register with their national ID card in order to get access to their homes. Residents received a temporary pass allowing them to enter the area freely, this is the latest security measure enforced by the Thai army.
