Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra says she will dissolve parliament and call an election, after sustained protests in the capital, Bangkok.

The move followed the resignation of all opposition MPs from parliament on Sunday, and came as protesters prepared to march on Government House.

Yingluck won elections in 2011.

But the protesters allege her government is controlled by her brother, ousted leader Thaksin Shinawatra, and want her to resign.

The announcement came as Yingluck addressed the nation on television.
