Thai Protest Leaders Cancel Demonstrations

Ad Feedback

Protest leaders in Thailand have called off their demonstrations after days of chaos in Bangkok, the country's capital.

Several days of clashes between the military and demonstrators have left two protesters dead and more than 120 injured across the city.

Four of the protest leaders have been taken into police custody.

A Thai political analyst told CBN News that the prime minister should dissolve the government and call for new elections.

"It would be an act of sacrifice if he does that to clear the slate," said Dr. Thitinan Pongsudhirak, director of the Institute of Security and International Studies. "And if there are deep doubts that lead to instability then dissolving the house is one way to release pressure and move forward, but they have to make sure conditions are in place for workable and acceptable polls otherwise the polls will be problematic."

The current government has only been in power for four months.
