Thailand court ousts PM Yingluck Shinawatra

A Thai court has ruled that Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra must step down over abuse of power charges.

The Constitutional Court ruled that Ms Yingluck acted illegally when she transferred her national security chief.

The ruling comes after months of political deadlock in the country.

Anti-government protesters have been trying to oust Ms Yingluck since November 2013, blockading parts of Bangkok.
