Thailand unrest: Opposition MPs pledge to resign

The main opposition party in Thailand has said all its MPs will resign en masse, after weeks of anti-government protests in Bangkok.

Opposition-backed street protesters have been trying to oust PM Yingluck Shinawatra, saying she is controlled by her brother, former PM Thaksin.

But Ms Yingluck has repeated that she is ready to dissolve parliament and hold fresh elections if agreement can be reached with her opponents.
