A Thai court on Tuesday approved an arrest warrant for fugitive former premier Thaksin Shinawatra on terrorism charges in connection with recent deadly street protests, an official said.

"A court approved the request to issue an arrest warrant against Thaksin," said Naras Savestanan, Deputy Chief of the Department of Special Investigations (DSI), which submitted the request.

"A court found there was enough evidence so it issued an arrest warrant," Naras told reporters after the hearing.
