Dozens of activists took to the streets of Bangkok on Thursday protesting against what they claim were the police's use of violent tactics at last week's 9th Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit.

During the earlier clashes, several protesters were injured after police used batons and rubber bullets, attempting to disperse a demonstration marching to the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center. Dozens of protesters were reportedly arrested.

One of the victims was injured by a rubber bullet and reportedly lost vision on the right eye.

A police official in charge of the event's security taskforce said that domestrators "broke the law" and "physically assaulted" his officers.

World leaders and hundreds of delegates from the 21 member countries of the Asia-Pacific region had gathered to discuss geopolitical issues, tourism and the services sector as well as increasing investment in health security.
