BANGKOK — A court in Thailand issued an arrest warrant Tuesday for former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra on terrorism charges, accusing the fugitive leader of a role in fomenting two months of unrest in Bangkok that left 88 people dead.

The Criminal Court issued the charges, which carry a death penalty, a day after testimony by the Department of Special Investigations into Thaksin's alleged involvement in the protests.
