Bangkok protests

Bangkok, Nov. 24 (Reuters): Thai police fired tear gas at stone-throwing demonstrators and made dozens of arrests today as thousands demanded the removal of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.

Protesters from the royalist Pitak Siam group repeatedly tried to breach police lines in the Thai capital and rammed a six-wheel truck into a security barrier but were held back.

They accused Yingluck’s government of corruption, being a puppet of former premier Thaksin Shinawatra and of disloyalty to Thailand’s monarchy.
