Court bans use of force against protests


BANGKOK: A Thai court yesterday ordered the government not to use force against peaceful protesters, after clashes between demonstrators and police left five dead and dozens wounded on both sides.

The ruling by the Civil Court could complicate Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra’s handling of more than three months of mass opposition protests, although her government had already pledged to avoid using violence against the demonstrators. — AFP
