BKK Update 16:35pm Bangkok Time

Drama is about to erupt. The Red Shirts have refused to leave the area and things are coming to a head tonight. It has been announced that armoured vehicles will surround the area and live bullets will be used tonight in an effort to disperse the crowd.
The Red Shirts and Prime Minister had initially come to some sort of agreement and were to iron out details after the demonstrators left the area. However, after the Red Shirts demanded the government take responsibility for the deaths in April, it has gone from bad to worse. Many believe (as reported on BBC) that the prime minister has been too soft on the Red Shirts and that this is well over-due. But he has claimed that he wants to avoid violence and that there is power in patcience.
