Thai police on Friday fired tear gas and a water cannon at protesters mounting a "final fight" to topple the embattled government, two days after the prime minister was stripped of office.

Thousands of protesters left their main encampment in a park in the city's commercial district as their firebrand leader Suthep Thaugsuban issued a rallying cry for them to establish a parallel government.

Fanning out into several groups they also surrounded a number of free-to-air television stations, saying they had interrupted broadcasts by authorities, as fears simmered of street clashes between rival political groups.
