- Thai 'red shirts' rally to demand leaders be freed

Thousands of anti-government "red shirts" demonstrated in the old Thai capital of Ayutthaya on Sunday to demand the release of their leaders and scores of comrades detained since bloody protests in April and May.

"We don't have leaders today. We are here on our own, the CRES can't arrest us," one speaker said from a makeshift stage, referring to the Centre for the Resolution of the Emergency Situation set up to coordinate the authorities' handling of the Bangkok protests. Hundreds of police were deployed near a football stadium where the main rally was taking place. (Reuters)
