Security forces in Thailand have broken up an anti-government demonstration near the prime minister's office in Bangkok and arrested two protest leaders.
They moved in shortly after the authorities declared a new state of emergency during the early hours of Thursday.
For more on why the government issued the decree, the BBC's Jonathan Head reports.
They said the protests were causing chaos.
But, in particular, they referred to affecting royal motorcades.
There have been a lot of protests and quite big ones since July and of course protestors have for the first time in modern Thai history focused their reform demands on the monarchy.
But yesterday was the first time a big protest happened when the king was in the country and there was a brief and rather inexplicable encounter when the queen's motorcade someone drove into the area where the protestors were already gathered.
She was jeered for a while before they moved her off.
