Thai 'car mob' protesters call for Prayuth's resignation

Government extends soft business lockdowns at least through mid-August

BANGKOK -- Thai protesters cruised around Bangkok in cars and on motorcycles on Sunday as a new form of anti-establishment rally took shape to call for Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha's resignation.

Hundreds of motorists honked their horns as they passed in front of the entrance of the base of the 1st Infantry Regiment, known as the King's Guard. The prime minister and his family live in a house on the base.
