Two killed in Thai anti-government protests

Hundreds of protesters seeking to overthrow Thailand's government stormed a police compound where the prime minister had been during the morning, forcing her to leave hastily for an undisclosed location, a government official said.

Police fired several rounds of teargas in an area of Bangkok near Government House, after a chaotic night of street fighting elsewhere in the capital during which two people were killed and at least 45 wounded, according to Reuters.
