Thailand's government has imposed a 60-day state of emergency in the capital, Bangkok, and the surrounding provinces, from today, to cope with unrest.

Anti-government protesters have been blocking parts of the capital to try to force Prime Minister  Yingluck Shinawatra to resign.

The measure allows for curfews to be imposed, for suspects to be held without charge and media censorship.

It also allows for bans of political gatherings and for parts of Bangkok to be declared off-limits.
