Protesters have clashed with military forces for five consecutive day in Bangkok after the government launched an operation to disperse anti-government protesters who have closed parts of the city for more than two months. Despite calls from the United Nations for both sides to begin talks, anti-government protesters in Bangkok have defied orders to leave their fortified camp, with 37 people having died and more than 260 injured since the military began its crackdown.
