BANGKOK — Thailand's prime minister survived a no-confidence motion Wednesday lodged by the opposition accusing him of brutally suppressing last month's mass protests in the capital.

Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva, defending himself during debate in Parliament on Tuesday, promised there would be an independent investigation into whether the army used undue force to clear anti-government protesters from Bangkok's streets.

Street clashes, grenade attacks and sniper fire over a 10-week period killed 89 people and wounded some 1,800. The thousands of Red Shirt protesters had been calling for Abhisit to dissolve Parliament immediately and call new elections.
