BANGKOK (AP) — Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has invoked an emergency security law in large parts of Bangkok and surrounding areas to cope with escalating protests against her government.

Yingluck announced the action Monday night after demonstrators seeking to remove her from office occupied parts of the finance and foreign ministries.

The Internal Security Act authorizes officials to seal off roads, take action against security threats, impose curfews and ban the use of electronic devices in designated areas. Peaceful rallies are allowed under the law.
