 BANGKOK (AP) - Thai police say an officer has been killed in clashes between security forces and anti-government protesters in the capital.
   Police spokesman Anucha Romyana says the officer died Thursday after being airlifted to a hospital.
   It's unclear how the officer died, but police said earlier that an officer had been struck by a bullet during the clashes.
   The clashes took place outside a Bangkok sports stadium where candidates were gathering to draw lots for their positions on the ballot ahead of general elections scheduled for Feb. 2.
   At least 60 people were injured in the daylong unrest.
   The protesters are seeking to topple the government and prevent the elections from taking place as scheduled.
