An ASEAN summit in Pattaya, Thailand, has been canceled over protests
An ASEAN summit in Pattaya, Thailand, has been canceled over protests in the summit press center, the Xinhua news agency said citing sources in the Chinese embassy in Thailand.

Anti-government protests started in Pattaya, 150 kilometers south of Bangkok, on Friday. On Saturday protestors burst into the ASEAN summit media center.

Thousands-strong demonstrations continue in the capital Bangkok, with protestors demanding that Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva resign.

Protest actions in Thailand started in March this year after the government allocated to 9 million low-paid Thai workers assistance worth $55 to each. Protestors called the assistance "bribing" and said the cabinet got power illegally.

Vejjajiva has introduced a state of emergency in Pattaya. AFP reported that helicopters have started evacuating foreign leaders.
