Thai businesses see red

Anti-government protests strangle businesses in Bangkok's central shopping district.

    Anti-government protests in Thailand have strangled businesses in the capital's central shopping district for the past month.

    Five major department stores, 14 hotels and 30 bank branches in the heart of Bangkok have been forced to close for almost a month.

    And some foreign investors are thinking it may be time to pull out.
