Thai authorities struggle to end mass street protest

• Reuters

Thai authorities will seek a court order on Monday to arrest leaders of tens of thousands of protesters occupying Bangkok's main shopping district, hoping to derail an increasingly bold four-week rally to force elections.

Despite repeated warnings they could face up to a year in jail, the red-shirted protesters occupied the area of upmarket department stores and luxury hotels for a second night on Sunday.
