Thai soldiers stand in respect ahead of the cremation of Maj. Gen. Khattiya Sawasdipol at a temple on Tuesday. Thousands of Thai "Red Shirts" turned out for the cremation of the rogue general, shot during opposition protests last month. More than 800 police officers were deployed to oversee the ceremony for Sawasdipol, an unofficial security advisor to the Red Shirts who was shot in the head while being interviewed by a reporter.
