Thai police move to reclaim protest sites
Riot police cleared anti-government protesters from a major boulevard in the Thai capital in a small victory for authorities Friday as they try to reclaim areas that have been closed during a three-month push to unseat Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.

 

Hundreds of helmeted police with riot shields met no resistance as they dismantled a sprawling protest camp in Bangkok's historic quarter near the prime minister's office compound, known as Government House. The office has been closed since December by protesters camped nearby. (AP)
