Protestors Shut Down Airport in Thailand

Hosted by

In Thailand, protesters have brought the country to the brink of chaos. Thousands of travelers are stranded at Bangkok's international airport, which the protesters have occupied since Tuesday. The ongoing saga dates back to protests in 2006 against former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who was ousted in a bloodless military coup that year. Tim Johnston is Bangkok correspondent for the Financial Times.
