Suthep leads protesters to seal off Government House

 Anti government protester led by Suthep Thaugsuban moved to seal off Government House to prevent caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra from returning to work at her office there.
Mr Suthep, People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) secretary general, led PDRC supporters from rally sites at Pathumwan, Silom, and Ratchaprasong, marching together from Hua Chang bridge to join the allied group of the Network of Students and People for the Reform of Thailand (NSPRT) which camped out near Government House.
Mr Suthep said earlier that the objective of the move today was to prevent Ms Yingluck from accessing Government House after the Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order (CMPO) has announced its intention to retake the area around Government House this week.
Issara Somchai, a PDRC leader, led protesters from Lumpini Park to Government House last night.
Upon arrival, the PDRC leaders instructed the protesters not to intrude into Government House premises, but just to cordon off the compound.
