Anti-government protesters had laid siege to the Agriculture, Tourism and Transport ministries, and were attempting to occupy the Interior Ministry, on Tuesday. 

According to a Thai Rath report, demonstrators continued to stream into the three ministries.

Security remained stringent outside the Interior Ministry on Asadang Road in Phra Nakhon district where members of the People's Democratic Force to Overthrow Thaksinism (Pefot) had encircled the premises, blocked all entrance and exit gates and called on people working in the ministry not to cooperate with the government and to return home immediately.
