    The temple is located in the middle of the shopping square which the red shirts occupied for over two months.

    A government investigation says the six people might have been shot by the military.

    Seven red shirt leaders, who were released on bail on February 22nd, also attended the Buddhist ceremony.

    Though the leaders are also not permitted to take part in any rallies, they vow to fight on.

    [Nattawut Saikua, Red Shirt Leader]:
    "We will still stand together and keep fighting side by side, exchange ideas and consultations. Our determination doesn't change, our stand doesn't change and our struggle doesn't change."

    The red shirts plan to hold another mass rally on March 12th.
