Street battles between protesters and police which started over the weekend in the Thai capital of Bangkok have intensified today.
The violence took place around key institutions - including the Parliament building and police headquarters - with officers using rubber bullets, water cannon and tear gas against the protesters.
Protest leaders are calling for a "people's council" to be set up to run the country, but Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said today that such a move would be undemocratic.
