BANGKOK (AP) — Thailand's main opposition party resigned from Parliament on Sunday to protest what it called "the illegitimacy" of a government with which it can no longer work. The move deepens the country's latest political crisis one day before new street demonstrations that many fear could turn violent.
TACLOBAN, Philippines (AP) — The government is back at work, and markets are laden with fruits, pork, fish and bread. Shredded trees are sprouting new leaves. Above all, the sounds of a city getting back on its feet fill the air: the roar of trucks hauling debris, the scrape of shovel along pavement, the ping of hammer on nails.
