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.

RIGA, Latvia - Latvia's prime minister unexpectedly resigned on Wednesday, saying he can no longer lead the country after a supermarket roof collapse killed 54 people and sparked public outrage.
