Bangkok changes colour

Orange, the colour of dress worn by bike taxi riders, swamps streets left by Red Shirt protesters.


    It has been nearly three months since Thailand's anti-government 'Red Shirt' protesters were driven from the streets of Bangkok.

    But now, the most common colour seen on the streets of the capital is the orange uniform of motorbike taxi riders.

    Their passengers range from business leaders to ordinary workers.

    But as Al Jazeera's Aela Callan reports, they are also being dragged into the murky world of Thai politics.
