Thailand protesters remain defiant

Thai protesters have surrounded several more government ministries, amid anti-government demonstrations in Bangkok.

The protesters want PM Yingluck Shinawatra's government to resign, saying it is controlled by her brother - ousted former PM Thaksin Shinawatra.

Meanwhile, Thailand's criminal court has issued an arrest warrant for former opposition Democratic Party lawmaker Suthep Thaugsuban, who has been leading protests triggered by a controversial political amnesty bill.
