For more on the political standoff in Thailand we're joined by our correspondent, Tony Cheng, in Bangkok.


Hi Tony. Today is the fifth day of continuous violent clashes in Bangkok. We know that the government gave the red-shirts a deadline to withdraw from the rally site in the Bangkok center by 3 pm local time. What's happening there now?


What impact has the unrest had on residents of Bangkok? Is life outside Bangkok running normally?


Earlier we heard some media reports that the National Security Council said financial transactions involving 106 bank or stock accounts associated with former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra will be halted if they're found to be linked to anti-government protesters. What can you tell us about this and the implications?
