Buddhist monks join members of the "red shirt" movement in prayer during a gathering near the Democracy Monument on April 10.

Supporters of Thaksin Shinawatra, the former prime minister of Thailand who was ousted in a 2006 coup, and members of the "Red Shirt" movement gathered on Wednesday in Bangkok to mark the anniversary of bloody clashes that occurred at Democracy Monument three years ago.

In 2010, a peaceful protest turned violent when dozens of civilians and several members of the security forces were killed when soldiers attempted to clear a Red Shirt rally site.
