Red shirts rally rural support

Thai protest leaders stage new rallies as they continue to press for PM to quit.

    Protests by Thailand's anti-government red shirt movement have entered their sixth week, with little sign that the protesters are easing up on their demands for the government to resign.

    They have also begun bringing in new supporters from the rural northeast of the country, a heartland of support for the red shirt cause.
