Thailand Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on 25 November 2013 declared a special emergency law for Bangkok after riot police and anti-government protesters scuffled in the capital city.

The decision came after hundreds of anti-government protesters stormed into the finance ministry compound and later forced their way into the foreign ministry building.

Anti-government protesters want Prime Minister to step down amid claims that her government was remote-controlled by her older brother Thaksin Shinawatra , who was forced to quit as prime minister in 2006. He has since lived in exile to avoid jail on a corruption conviction.
 
The current political crisis is the most serious confrontation in Thailand since the 2010 bloody protests in which over 90 people were killed.
