Tensions eased in Thailand today, as police took down barricades in the capital and allowed anti-government demonstrators to enter the compounds of government buildings.

The Thai government said it had negotiated a truce with protesters for the next several days to honour the birthday of the country's deeply revered King.

But the leader of the protests said the fight against Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and her exiled brother, would continue.
