Thai protesters accept proposed Nov. 14 election


BANGKOK, May 10 (Reuters) - Thai anti-government protesters said on Monday they had accepted a proposed timeframe for the government to dissolve parliament and hold elections on Nov. 14, but they had yet to say whether they would end their protest. Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva has offered an early election in November as part of a plan to end a crisis that has scared off tourists and left 29 people dead.
