Thailand's red-shirted demonstrators poured blood at the gate of Prime Minister's house at about 12:00 a.m. local time Wednesday after they initiated the blood-pouring tactic Tuesday at the Government House and the headquarters of the ruling Democrat Party.

Ten more companies of police and soldiers have been deployed to reinforce six companies of security officials at the house of the Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva.

Thousands of red-shirts arrived at Street Sukhumvit 31, where Abhisit's house is situated, at about 11:45 a.m. local time in a heavy rain.

They were stopped by the security forces about ten metres away from Abhisit's house before they managed to break through the blockade and poured the blood at the entrance gate and inside the yard.

Some plastic bags fulled of blood and filthy stuff were also threw into the yard. One of the buildings was stained by the blood, according to the reporter at site.

The blood the red-shirts poured was donated Tuesday by red-shirted protesters.

The red-shirts movement has staged the rally to topple the Abhisit administration since March 12, urging the Prime Minister to dissolve the parliament and to call a fresh election.
