Thailand's Constitutional Court has ordered Prime Minister Yingluk Shinawatra to stand down.

The court found the 46-year-old sister of billionaire former leader Thaksin Shinawatra guilty of violating the constitution and abusing her power.

Several other members of her cabinet are also implicated in the case and have been ordered to resign.
