Thailand Protesters Still Trying to "Shut Down" Bangkok

Down to 20,000


Tens of thousands of demonstrators on Tuesday continued anti-government protests in Bangkok intended to drive Thailand's Prime Minister out of office.

The protesters have laid siege to major intersections in Thailand's large and hectic capital city. At their peak on Monday evening, they numbered as many as 170,000, said Lt. Gen. Paradon Pattanathabut, the nation's security chief.
