BANGKOK (AP) - Police in Thailand say they have arrested the leader of protesters who stormed an Asian summit and forced its cancellation.
Police Maj. Gen. Supon Pansua says Arisman Pongruengrong was taken into custody Sunday and is being detained at the headquarters of Thailand's Border Patrol Police.
Thailand's Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva earlier Sunday vowed swift legal action against the protesters who humiliated his government by storming the venue of a 16-nation Asian summit. The premier said one arrest warrant had been issued but did not disclose any details.
Abhisit spoke on national television as fears mounted that the country could face violence or a military crackdown in coming days.
