Bangkok, Thailand (AP) The leader of a group of anti-government demonstrators in Thailand says the weeklong siege of Bangkok's airports will end Wednesday morning.

A government official says the first flights out of Bangkok's International Airport will leave for Rome and Sydney on Dec. 5.

Thousands of protesters have been camped out for days at two airports in Bangkok. The protest has halted flights and stranded thousands of air travelers.

The chairman of the airport authority says he has inspected the airport and found no damage.

The announcements came hours after a court ruling brought down Thailand's government.
