Thailand's young protesters turn backs on royal motorcade

Bad Students wrap Democracy Monument in white shroud and graffiti

BANGKOK -- Hundreds of youth-led protesters including high school students turned their backs on a royal motorcade carrying King Maha Vajiralongkorn and Queen Suthida as it passed Democracy Monument at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday.

The participants stood with their hands raised in three-finger salutes, and many sang the national anthem, which the rally's organizers were playing loudly.
