The red-shirts who broke into the compound of the city hall in Udon Thani on Wednesday set fire to an old building inside the grounds, a television report said.

The fire quickly razed the wooden building, which was the old city hall and still in use.

Earlier on Wednesday, about 5,000 red-shirts stormed the city hall to show dissatisfaction with the government's use of force to break up the protest in Bangkok, and demanded a House dissolution.

The Centre for the Resolution of the Emergency Situation (CRES) has announced curfew in Bangkok and nearby cities and provinces in the North and Northeast earlier placed under emergency law.

People in areas under curfew are not allowed to leave their homes from 8pm to 6am, with immediate effect.

State authorities are allowed to perform their duties in the restricted areas to restore peace and order.

The curfew order was signed by Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva late this afternoon
