BANGKOK -- Thailand's pro-democracy protesters are planning another rally for Thursday to maintain pressure on Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha after besieging the German embassy earlier in the week.

"I will lead the next big rally on Thursday to challenge the government and fight for democracy," Patsaravalee "Mind" Tanakitvibulpon, a key protest leader, told Nikkei Asia on Tuesday. Another demonstration is to be staged outside The Nation media offices in Bang Na, southeast Bangkok.
