BANGKOK - For years, protesters in Thailand have used social media to organize rallies. Now they're taking smartphones to a new level.
BANGKOK - Since being ousted as Thailand's prime minister in a 2006 military coup, Thaksin Shinawatra has been a very busy man. The billionaire bought and sold England's Manchester City football club, acquired a titanium mine in Zimbabwe, started a lottery in Uganda and acquired a Nicaraguan passport. He met with Vladimir Putin and Nelson Mandela.
BANGKOK - Anti-government protesters in Thailand cut off electricity to the prime minister's office compound on Thursday while their leaders met with businesspeople to explain why they want to oust the caretaker government before upcoming elections.
BANGKOK - Protesters waging a surreal political fight to oust Thailand's elected prime minister are trying to establish what amounts to a parallel government - one complete with "security volunteers" to replace the police, a foreign policy of their own and a central committee that has already begun issuing audacious orders.
BANGKOK - Thailand's political crisis took an unexpected turn Monday when Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said she would dissolve the lower house of Parliament and call early elections. The move appeared to be an attempt to ease tension after weeks of sometimes violent anti-government demonstrations. The country has experienced years of alternating street protests between supporters and opponents of Yingluck's older brother, ex-Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who remains a key figure in Thai politics even though he is in self-imposed exile in Dubai.
Your daily look at late-breaking news, upcoming events and the stories that will be talked about Monday:

BANGKOK - Both the protesters on the streets of Bangkok and the Thai government pleading for them to go home say they're on the side of democracy, but that is not what their increasingly dangerous conflict is about. This is a fight about power, and who ought to have it.
Questions and answers about the political unrest in Thailand:
BANGKOK - Thailand's embattled government received a sharp scolding Wednesday from the country's top court, with a ruling on constitutional change suggesting that the conservative political establishment is still not ready to reconcile with forces supporting former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who was ousted in a 2006 military coup.
