Thirty Thailand Government Protesters Convicted

Seized two airports in Bangkok in 2008


Thirty members of a protest movement have been indicted for seizing Bangkok's two airports in 2008 during political chaos that left Thailand bitterly divided.

Prosecutors said the members of the People's Alliance for Democracy, also known as Yellow Shirts, and their TV station were charged Thursday with terrorism, violation of an emergency decree and other offenses. Terrorism is a capital offense.

All of the suspects are free on bail.
