Thousands rally in Thai PM stronghold

Thousands of supporters of Prime Minister Shinawatra rally as anti-government protests are scaled back in Bangkok.

    Thailand is holding elections in five provinces where voting was disrupted last month by anti-government protesters.
     
    Demonstators in the capital Bangkok say they'll reduce the size of their rallies, and withdraw from several protest sites.
     
    Thousands of people have gathered in Northern Thailand to show their support for the government.
