Thailand protesters plan rally at German Embassy after PM's silence

Prayuth ignores demand to resign, prompting demonstrations with diplomatic twist

BANGKOK -- Organizers of Thailand's pro-democracy protests have called for demonstrations at the German Embassy in Bangkok after demands that Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha resign by 10 p.m. Saturday went unmet.

Supporters of the pro-democracy movement were told to gather Monday evening at the embassy, a symbolic move as Thai King Maha Vajiralongkorn spends most of his time in the European country. Protesters have called for the monarchy to be reformed to curb the king's powers as part of their demands.
