ASEAN foreign ministers meet ahead of Bangkok summit

Foreign ministers of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) met on Saturday in Bangkok ahead of a summit of the leaders of the 10 member countries. Security was tightened around the city, and officials have said some 10,000 security personnel were set to be deployed, mindful of the incident 10 years ago when a summit of Asian leaders had to be cancelled after anti-government protesters stormed into the venue.
