Hundreds of Thai student protesters wave torchers and sing

Hundreds of Thai student protesters sing songs while waving their mobile phone flashlights at a university.

Rallies erupted around Thailand today (October 17th) despite ministers issuing a state of emergency which bans gatherings of more than five people and the Prime Minister issuing a chilling 'death' warning.

Footage from the Khon Kaen University in northeast Thailand shows the youngsters joining in with the movement while singing.

The scenes came as large crowds gathered at subway and train stations across the capital Bangkok in the fifth day of anti-government rallies. Demonstrations started at 4 pm in the capital of Thailand following clashes with police on Friday night.

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha had ordered roads to be blocked and warned a curfew could be imposed if protests escalate.

The leader also made chilling veiled threats warning protesters ''not to tempt the grim reaper'' before adding that ''everyone can die today or tomorrow."
