BANGKOK, Jan 19 (Reuters) - Four people were slightly injured in an explosion at a camp of anti-government protesters in the capital, police said on Sunday.

"We heard a sound like a bomb ... at a protestors' compound near the Victory Monument (in central Bangkok). Four people were slightly injured and were hospitalised," a police spokesman told Reuters. He did not give further details.

On Friday night, one protester was killed and 35 wounded when a grenade exploded in a sudden flare-up of violence in more than two months of demonstrations trying to bring down Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's government.
