Anti-government leaders and Thai Buddhist monks chant prayers for the dead Saturday, April 17, 2010, at a rally in Bangkok, Thailand. Last weekend, a major attempt to clear one of the two main protest sites ended in fierce clashes, 24 deaths and hundreds of injuries. It also failed to dislodge the protesters, although they since moved out and consolidated at their second camp in an upscale shopping and hotel district. On Friday Thailand's Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva handed more power to the Thai Army after security forces were humiliated in an attempt to capture a red shirt leader. (AP)
