One day after at least five people were killed in gunbattles in Bangkok, anti-government protesters are massing outside Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's headquarters. A senior security official said police would not attempt for now to retake more protest sites, after Tuesday's "Peace for Bangkok Mission" saw the deadliest clashes since the anti-government demonstrations began in November.
