Thai soldier dies in clash with protesters

At least one soldier has been killed and at least 10 people have been wounded in violent clashes between Thai protesters and soldiers in Bangkok.

The authorities have warned they are running out of patience with the thousands of red-shirt anti-government protesters.

Concerns about the rising level of violence in the country have prompted the British Foreign Office to advise against all but essential travel to Thailand.

Alastair Leithead reports from Bangkok.
