The Prime Minister of Thailand, Yingluck Shinawatra, has announced that she is dissolving parliament, after a wave of anti-government protests in the capital Bangkok. Ms Yingluck said she will hold new elections as soon as possible.

The move followed the resignation of all opposition MPs from parliament on Sunday, and a planned march on Government House on Monday.
