Thai authorities to sever protesters’ supply lines

Thailand’s authorities vowed Wednesday to sever food and water supplies to opposition protesters camped in the heart of the capital as hopes faded for a resolution to the crippling standoff.

The government also urged local residents to leave the area, saying they would restrict access as part of tough new measures against the thousands of “Red Shirt” demonstrators who have paralysed parts of Bangkok.

Embattled Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva has demanded the protests end on Wednesday, but the mainly poor and working class movement appeared in no mood to pack up and go home.

Their leaders have vowed to continue their rally until deputy premier Suthep Thaugsuban is charged for his role overseeing a deadly April 10 crackdown, when armed troops attempted to clear part of the capital.
