Anti-government protesters in Thailand have retaken parts of the old royal quarter in Bangkok that were reclaimed last week by the police.
Opposition leaders led a triumphant march to the prime minister's office, that has been blocked by protesters since last December.
The protesters want Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to step down, and her government to be replaced by an unelected "people's council" to reform the political system.
