3 Dao Din Khon Kaen student activists arrested, released

Update: the three were released on Friday evening with no charge.
 
The police have detained three student activists from the Dao Din group of Khon Kaen University, interrupting their plan to show moral support to seven other group members wanted by the police. 
 
Kwanhathai Patumtawonsakul, Jiratchaya Hannarong and Krit Sangsurin were arrested at 1 pm when they were on their way to Khon Kaen’s Democracy Monument. The police confiscated seven drawings of the seven Dao Din members who were earlier summoned to report in for displaying placards against the junta. 
 
They are now detained incommunicado at Sri Patcharin military camp.
