The British Foreign and Commonwealth Office said there have been a number of political demonstrations in Bangkok and elsewhere in Thailand since the beginning of November.

Yingluck Shinawatra became prime minister after a general election in 2011. Her brother, Thaksin Shinawatra, was ousted by a military coup in 2006 while he was out of the country and still faces criminal charges.
