Over in Thailand
the country's Constitutional Court ruled Friday that a general election held last month was invalid.
The court has now ordered new elections.
Officials say they annulled the results of the February 2nd poll because nationwide voting did not take place in every constituency on the same day.
The election called by embattled Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra ran into problems after protesters blocked candidates from registering in 28 constituencies.
The latest ruling comes after weeks of anti-government protests, where demonstrators are hoping to oust the prime minister, who is accused of corruption.
