Thousands of anti-government protesters in Thailand have boarded motorcycles and trucks for a mass rally in Bangkok in the latest stage of their campaign.
The “red-shirt” movement, many of them supporters of former PM Thaksin Shinawatra, wants the government to step down and call new elections.
Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva has admitted his country is divided, but has refused to step down.
The numbers of protesters are down since the rallies began last weekend.
But thousands of people dressed in red rode motorbikes or boarded cars and trucks to flood the streets of the Thai capital in a bid to boost support for their cause.
