Monks and other religious figures have held a vigil in Bangkok a week on from the army's operation to clear the capital of anti-government protesters.

Several hundred monks led ceremonies which featured Christian, Sikh and Muslim leaders in mass prayers to bless the city.

The government says it wants to pursue reconciliation in the wake of the protests.

More than 80 people died over the course of the two-month stand-off.
