Protesters in Thailand Occupy State Buildings

Want the prime minister, who is facing a parliamentary no-confidence vote, to resign


Thai anti-government demonstrators are expanding their protests at key state buildings in Bangkok in an effort to oust the prime minister, who is facing a no-confidence vote in parliament.

Several thousand opposition protesters surrounded the Interior Ministry on Tuesday, and have vowed to stay throughout the night. Protesters already seized parts of the finance and foreign ministries a day earlier, and have camped outside several other state buildings.
