A Thai court has ruled that Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra must step down over abuse of power charges.

The Constitutional Court ruled that Yingluck acted illegally when she transferred her national security head.

The ruling follows months of political deadlock. Anti-government protesters have been trying to oust Ms Yingluck since November 2013.

The move is likely to trigger protests by supporters of the government, which remains very popular in rural areas.
