Protesters loyal to fugitive ex-premier Thaksin Shinawatra storm the venue of the 14th Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit and Related Summits after smashing a window, in Pattaya some 180 km south-east of Bangkok on April 11, 2009. Thousands of Thai anti-government protesters later smashed their way into a summit of Asian leaders, forcing the country’s embattled government to postpone the entire meeting indefinitely. Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva declared a state of emergency in the resort of Pattaya after chaos erupted at the summit, which was supposed to discuss the global financial crisis and North Korea’s rocket launch.
