Inside Bangkok's red city

Thailand's red shirt movement dig in as stand-off with government continues.

    After seven straight weeks of anti-government demonstrations on the streets of Bangkok, Thailand's red shirt protesters show no sign of giving up.

    With red shirt leaders bracing for what they fear will be a government crackdown against them, the protesters have been reinforcing their camps in the heart of the Thai capital.

    As well as sealing off a large part of the city's commercial district, they have built their own "red city", which is home to tens of thousands of protesters.
