Thai red shirts defiant after protests

Protesters refuse to negotiate with government after deadly day of clashes in Bangkok.

    Red shirt protesters in Thailand are refusing to negotiate with the government after the worst rioting in two decades yesterday left at least 21 people dead.

    The anti-government protesters want parliament dissolved and Abhisit Vejjajiva, the prime minister, to leave the country.

    A certain calm has returned to the streets of the nation's capital, but the standoff is still far from over.

    Al Jazeera's Wayne Hay has this report from Bangkok.
