Anti-government protesters have set up blockades at seven key intersections in Bangkok in a fresh bid to topple the government of Yingluck Shinawatra.
Around 400 protesters have rallied in the Thai capital to call on the government to restore democracy and hold elections. The junta still hasn't fulfilled its pledge to organize polls after seizing power four years ago.
Thailand has charged nine people over anti-government protests that saw former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra removed. Thailand's attorney-general plans to file charges against 34 others who did not show up in court.
The Supreme Court has issued an arrest warrant after ex-PM Yingluck Shinawatra failed to appear for the verdict in the case regarding her rice subsidy scheme. Thai media reports the politician fled to the Middle East.
Thailand's attractiveness as a tourist destination remains evergreen as millions of tourists continue to flock to the Southeast Asian nation, providing much needed momentum to its economy. But challenges remain.
