Thai PM supporters rally in Bangkok
Thailand's Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has sent lawyers to answer charges of negligence brought against her by the country's anti-corruption commission.
She is accused of negligence over a government rice subsidy scheme.
Ms Shinawatra's opponents say the programme was rife with corruption but 300 of her supporters have attempted to stop the hearing by blocking access gates.
