Thai demos intensify after ruling

Thousands of protesters are marching through the Thai capital to show that the prime minister's ouster by a court ruling is not enough.

The demonstrators warned they will retaliate unless their demands for the government's complete removal are met within three days.

Traffic was snarled around Bangkok as protesters marched to Government House - the prime minister's main office.

They also have surrounded several public television stations to, in their own words, ask for co-operation in stopping broadcasts on government news.

The latest rally comes two days after Yingluck Shinawatra was removed from power by a court on grounds that she had illegally transferred a civil servant to another post.

Yingluck supporters and many analysts criticise the ruling as politically motivated.
