A group of the"red-shirts" gathered on the road in order to check illegally cars heading to capital Bangkok, Thai News Agency reported.

The disperse occurred at about 18:24 p.m. and over 20 "red- shirts" were arrested..

The "red-shirts" blockage was ordered by core leader Natthawut Saikua in Bangkok on fears that police would disperse the rally by Monday.

The "red-shirts" rally has been held from March 12 and they are now gathering at the Rathchaprasong Intersection in the center of capital Bangkok.

They have demanded Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva " immediately" dissolve the lower House of parliament and hold a new general election.

They are viewing that, apart from the House dissolution, there is no other solution to the country's ongoing political conflict.
