BANGKOK, Oct. 3, 2010 (Xinhua News Agency) -- Combined forces of police and security authorities in northern province of Chiangmai arrested 11 "red-shirt" militants in a resort Saturday evening, a local website Kom Chad Luek reported Sunday.

A local security source unveiled with Kom Chad Luek on Sunday that the police chief of Mae-On district in Chiangmai Saturday arrested Kittichai Chansawatdee alleged as a member of "red-shirt" militants who said he had escaped from a resort where the rest of militants stayed and used as an operational base.

As Kittichai confessed, the police were then able to capture the rest of the members except Saharat who was claimed to be the leader of the group and was under arrest warrant issued by the Center for the Resolution of Emergency Situation.

According to Kittichai who reportedly said his personal code is j0011, there were 30 members of "red-shirt" militants trained in the border area of neighboring Cambodia and then around 12 of them came one by one to Chiangmai to wait for appropriate time for conducting operations.

After being investigated, all 11 arrested militants are currently detained in a safe house in Chiangmai for further interrogation. They are native differently to northeastern, central and northern regions of Thailand.

During the months-long protest of the "red-shirt" movement from March to May this year, there were black-clad militants armed with munitions lurking among the protesters and attacking against troops and civilians. The government accused they were members of "red-shirts" and blamed these men dressed in black for triggering clashes between the military and the protesters which eventually resulted in 91 people dead and almost 2,000 injured.
