From the BBC:
A summit of Asian leaders in Thailand has been postponed after anti-government protesters broke into the venue in the resort of Pattaya.I don't mean this to bash Thailand in any way (I've never been there, but with one single exception, every one of the many Thais I've met have been very nice people), but this is one of those things — cancellation of a major international gathering of heads-of-state — that, had it happened in Korea, we'd never ever hear the end of it. It would be a sign of how backward and out-of-touch Korea is, a real laughingstock for the rest of the world.
PM Abhisit Vejjajiva has declared an "extreme state of emergency" in Pattaya, and said his priority was to ensure the leaders got home safely.
Several leaders from the Association of South-East Asian Nations (Asean) have now been airlifted from the area.
