Thailand protests: Demonstrators target government buildings

Tens of thousands of anti-government protesters are marching for a second day in the Thai capital, Bangkok.

The protests have been triggered by a controversial political amnesty bill which, despite failing to pass in the Senate, has reignited simmering political divisions in the country.

Campaign leader Suthep Thaugsuban had said the protest would be peaceful but hundreds of people forced their way into the compound of the finance ministry.
