BANGKOK -- Thousands of Thai protesters assembled outside the country's parliament on Thursday as lawmakers debated on accepting constitutional amendment motions submitted by the ruling coalition and opposition parties.

The parliament decided to delay votes on accepting six motions, instead voting to set up a panel to study each motion. The committee will involve lower and upper house members.
