Embattled PM rules out stepping down as quick fix to political crisis - Tailan
Thailand's embattled prime minister is dismissing calls for his resignation, saying he does not feel that stepping down will resolve the country's political crisis, the AP reported.
Prime Minister Somchai Wongsawat says he is "not attached" to his position but doesn't feel that stepping down is the right solution to Thailand's political problems.
Somchai was speaking Sunday on national television amid calls that he resign to take responsibility for violent clashes Tuesday that left nearly 500 protesters injured and three dead. It was the worst political violence in Thailand in over a decade.
Anti-government protesters have accused riot police of using excessive force and plan a large demonstration Monday outside Bangkok's police headquarters.
