Over in Thailand
At least four people were killed and dozens injured on Tuesday as police began forcing anti-government demonstrators out of protest sites in the capital, Bangkok.
Officials say one police officer was killed and several others seriously injured by a grenade thought to be thrown by protesters.
While claiming they were targeted by snipers, police officers also fired live rounds, reclaiming the first of five sites from protesters.
Authorities are trying to retake official sites that have been blocked by demonstrators since protests against Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's government broke out in November last year.
