World update: Protests growing in Thailand

An update from London on some of the international stories we expect to develop Monday:

Thai protests - Anti-government protesters have threatened to begin collecting hundreds of liters of blood to toss on official buildings as they step up their efforts to bring down Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva's administration.

U.S.-Israel relations - Israel's top envoy to the U.S. says the two countries face the worse crisis in bilateral relations in 35 years. The Israeli prime minister has set up a team to investigate why officials announced new settlement construction in disputed territory while U.S. Vice President Joe Biden was visiting the country.

Baghdad bombing - A car bomb detonated Monday on a busy street in central Iraq, killing at least seven people and injuring 13 others.

Beckham injured - Footballer David Beckham's dream of playing in a fourth World Cup looks to be over after he tore an Achilles tendon in AC Milan's 1-0 win over Chievo on Sunday.

Tropical cyclone - Tropical Cyclone Tomas battered Fiji's northern islands on Monday evening with gusts of up to 275 km/h (170 mph), but weather officials had not received immediate reports of damage.
