Bangkok, Thailand (CNN) -- A bomb killed two people, including a 12-year-old boy, and wounded nearly two dozen at an anti-government rally in Thailand's capital Sunday, police reported.

The blast occurred outside a shopping mall in the Ratchaprasong area of Bangkok. In addition to the boy, a woman about 40 was killed, and 22 people were wounded, the Erawan Emergency Center reported.

It was the latest violence to punctuate three months of protests against the government of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. It detonated about 4:50 p.m. near the rally's main stage, said Lt. Gen. Paradon Patthanathabut, Thailand's national security chief.
