Thai PM survives no-confidence vote

It was a subdued start to the day in Bangkok, as demonstrators ate breakfast and drank tea. Hundreds had stayed overnight here in ministries and government offices. They stormed the buildings on Wednesday hoping to shut them down and paralyse the government of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. But still anti-government protesters plan to keep the pressure on by marching to police headquarters and the defence ministry later in the day.. There have been huge protests in Bangkok for weeks. The protesters, who are led by a former opposition party politician, say Yingluck's government is controlled by her brother - the ousted former leader Thaksin Shinawatra. But despite the biggest protests since the violence in 2010, Yingluck easily survived a no-confidence vote in parliament. The motion was brought by the opposition Democrat Party, but Yingluck's Pheu Thai party dominate the chamber and voted it down.
