Members of the Thailand Patriot Network on Friday rallied in front of the Cambodian embassy in Bangkok, calling on the Phnom Penh government to immediately release the seven detained Thais, reports said.

The protesters, led by core leader Somboon Thongburan, burned a coffin with a photo of Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen. They vowed to continue their rally in front of Government House until all the Thais are freed.

About 50 policemen were deployed around at the embassy during the protest.
