Investigators of the Metropolitan Police Bureau plan to testify to the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) about identities of gunmen who have been allegedly fired at troops on April 10, a senior police officer said Friday, the Thai News Agency (TNA) reported.

The investigators have learnt the identities of all black-shirt gunmen, who fought against troops at the Kokwua Intersection in central Bangkok on April 10, said Police Major General Sumet Ruangsawat, deputy commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Bureau.

Witnesses and pictures concerned with these gunmen in black shirts are concrete, Sumet said.

Some 25 people lost lives during a series of clashes between the anti-government "red-shirts" and security personnel on April 10 at the Kokwua area, according to the Erawan's Bangkok Emergency Medical Service Center.

During the violent clashes, the black-shirt gunmen, who were among the protesters, attacked the security forces.
