Thailand PM Declared Emergency Law For Bangkok

Thailand Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has on 25 November declared a special emergency law for Bangkok after riot police and anti-government protesters scuffled in the capital city. The decision came after hundreds of anti-government protesters stormed into the finance ministry compound and later forced their way into the foreign ministry building. Anti-government protesters want Prime Minister to step down amid claims that her government was remote-controlled by her older brother Thaksin Shinawatra , who was forced to quit as prime minister in 2006. He has since lived in exile to avoid jail on a corruption conviction.
