In Thailand, large-scale anti-government rallies took place for the adoption of a new constitution and the resignation of the government of Prime Minister Prayut Chan-Ochu, Bangkokpost reported.

Most of the crowd were young protesters who had gathered in the pouring rain on the Thammasat University campus. They also demanded a reform of the monarchy, which provoked harsh reactions from more conservative sections of society.

Prayut Chan-Ocha promised that the authorities will apply "soft measures" to the protesters "because they are children."
