Asian summit postponed after Thai protesters storm building: official | smh.com.au
Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva declared a state of emergency in the resort of Pattaya after chaos erupted at the summit, which was supposed to discuss the global financial crisis and North Korea's rocket launch.

Helicopters had began evacuating foreign leaders, officials said.

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd had been scheduled to arrive in Pattaya late on Saturday afternoon, but Channel Ten reported that his plane had been diverted to an unknown destination. It was expected to refuel before returning to Canberra, it said.
