Pattaya, Thailand - Thousands of protesters smashed through a glass entrance and stormed a hotel complex today during a key meeting of regional heads of state.
Thailand has declared a state of emergency in the summit's host city Pattaya and the annual meeting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations has been called off. Other protests have now been reported in the northern city of Chaing Mai, where protesters have blocked a road, and in Udon Thani, where demonstrators have surrounded City Hall.
The widespread turmoil caps a week of anti-government protests that have paralyzed Bangkok and raised new fears about Thailand's political stability.
