Pressure mounts on Thai PM

The pressure is mounting on prime minister Abhisit Vejjajiva, after Thailand's army chief called for parliament to be dissolved.

Election officials have also ruled that Mr Vejjajiva's party can be charged over illegal donations.

Twenty-one people died in clashes between troops and anti-government protesters over the weekend, in the worst political violence in Thailand for nearly 20 years.

As Alistair Leithead reports from Bangkok, one of the dead was a Japanese cameraman working for Reuters whose last footage has been released.
