In pictures: Thai protest goes on

New demands

The Thai protesters occupying the central government complex in Bangkok have seen one of their demands realised – former Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej, who they claimed was merely a proxy for their exiled foe Thaksin Shinawatra, has been forced out of office.

But Mr Thaksin’s brother-in-law, Somchai Wongsawat, has now taken Mr Samak’s place as prime minister. The protesters from the People’s of Alliance for Democracy now say they will not leave until the entire government is out of power.
