Thai protesters threaten stock exchange
Protesters trying to topple Thailand’s government moved to tighten the blockade around ministries on Tuesday, with one hardline faction threatening to storm the stock exchange.
The turmoil is the latest chapter in an eight-year conflict pitting the Bangkok-based middle class and royalist establishment against the mostly poorer, rural supporters of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and her brother, Thaksin Shinawatra, the former premier who was ousted by the military in 2006.
