Elephant-riders join Myanmar coup protests

Video obtained by Reuters shows protesters, some with signs, riding on seven elephants ahead of other demonstrators who were marching and on motorcycles.

It comes as Myanmar's military-appointed foreign minister flew into Thailand on Wednesday, a Thai government source said, as Myanmar's neighbors intensified efforts to resolve a crisis that began when its army seized power in the Feb. 1 coup.

This week has seen huge rallies and a general strike to denounce the coup and demand the release of elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi, despite a warning from authorities that confrontation could get people killed.
