BANGKOK, Thailand -- Hundreds of demonstrators forced their way into Thailand's army headquarters Friday, the latest building targeted in anti-government protests aimed at unseating Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. Shortly after noon, protesters breached the gate of the army compound in central Bangkok and remained inside for about two hours without entering any buildings before drifting off. Demonstrators gave speeches and were heard demanding that the army take a side in the showdown.

The death toll from a typhoon that devasted southern Thailand and then swept through southeast India continued to rise in both countries, to 304 in Thailand and 39 in India, officials in both countries said Friday. Thai Interior Minister Pramarn Adireksan said the final death count would be much higher as more than 500 fishermen were still missing. Typhoon Gay also damaged 20,000 houses and left more than 100,000 people homeless in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.

Rescuers suspended their search late Saturday for 97 crewmen of a U.S.-owned oil drilling ship that capsized in the worst typhoon to hit Thailand in more than three decades. A helicopter spotted the upside-down hull of the 351-foot Seacrest, but a search covering 600 square miles in the Gulf of Thailand failed to find survivors, lifeboats or debris from the vessel.
