Thailand Divided Following Controversial Election
Anti-government leader Suthep Thaugsuban speaks about the elections during his daily speech February 3, 2014 in Bangkok,Thailand. After disrupting the general election February 2, anti-government demonstrators are determined to keep up their campaign against Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. The "Bangkok Shutdown" has been in effect for three weeks as the anti-government protesters continue to block major intersections. The Thai government imposed a 60-day state of emergency in Bangkok and the surrounding provinces in an attempt to cope with the on-going political turmoil, however this decree has had no effect on the mass protests.
