The leader of Thailand's protesters, Suthep Thaugsuban, has pledged that demonstrators will remain on the streets until the country's "tyrant government" has been deposed.

In an interview Mr Thaugsuban said the demonstrators were determined to replace the current regime with a "People's Council".

Elections are planned on 2 February but the opposition groups who have brought much of the capital Bangkok to a standstill, are calling for a boycott of the polls.
