Protesters Take to Streets over Yingluck's Indictment
Opposition protesters in Thailand have once-again taken to the streets in what they're describing as a final push to topple the interim government ahead of July's election.
Protesters in Bangkok have launched several marches on government buildings and media outlets.
A number of protesters have been injured after police fired tear gas to try to dispurse the crowds at one of the protest sites.
Protest leaders are also demanding an audience with the country's interim Prime Minister or any member of the caretaker cabinet.
The renewal of protests follows an indictment against ousted Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra by the country's Anti-Graft Commission connected to her controversial rice subsidy program.
Commission member Vicha Mahakun.
"(The NACC) has voted 7-0 that there are grounds that the defendant had intentionally used her authority against Article 178 of the Constitution and intentionally used her power against the law that could lead to her impeachment."
If impeached, Yingluck would be barred from Thai politics for five years.
As a flagship policy of Yingluck's administration, the rice subsidy programme helped her win the votes of millions of farmers.
However, it accumulated losses of at least 4.4 billion US dollars and has been dogged by corruption allegations.
The indictment came just a day after the Constitutional Court ousted Yingluck and nine Cabinet members for abuse of power.
