    Clean-up operations are underway in Bangkok, Thailand's capital, days after the largest shopping centre in the country was burnt down during deadly unrest between the red shirt protesters and security forces.

    The destruction of the second largest shopping centre in Southeast Asia has caused a loss estimated between 15 and 30bn dollars on the buildings alone.

    And Bangkok's stock exchange was also damaged, bringing a halt to trading and threatening economic growth in the country.
