Protesters begin scaling back presence in Bangkok streets
Anti-government protesters in Thailand have begun scaling back their presence in the streets of Bangkok, in what could be a prelude to eased tensions.
This comes after opposition leader Suthep Thaugsuban said on Friday demonstrators would withdraw from several key intersections in the capital. Protesters on Saturday cleaned posters and graffiti outside the headquarters of the Royal Thai Police.
