Anti-monarchy protests break out in Thailand

Foreign Affairs Correspondent

Thousands of people have taken part in demonstrations in Thailand against the monarchy. Protesters are calling for reforms and limits to the power of the institution that until recent times were seen as beyond criticism.

The protesters are unhappy with how the king has performed his duties since he ascended to the throne in 2016. But they were met with his supporters on the streets.
