Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has dissolved
parliament and called a snap election, but anti-government
protest leaders pressed ahead with mass demonstrations
seeking to install an unelected body to run Thailand.
Dozens of fans have fought a savage battle on the terraces at
a Brazilian championship match, interrupting play for more
than one hour and leaving at least three people reportedly
hospitalised in serious condition.
Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has proposed a
referendum on her future and promised to resign if that is
what the people want, as anti-government protesters prepared
for a final push to try to force her from power.
