Anti-government protesters in Thailand have resumed their activities after a one-day break, turning their attention to fellow demonstrators who remain jailed after their arrest.
A crowd gathered outside Bangkok Remand Prison, with their numbers growing to as many as 2000 after dark.
The crowd greeted the release of one of the protest leaders, Jatupat Boonpattararaksa, but were demanding the freedom of seven others.
"We have all come here to wait for our seven friends to be freed," Jatupat told the crowd after his release.
"If they are not released, we will oust Prayuth Chan-ocha."
In fact, ousting Prayuth is among the key goals of the protesters, who have intensified their efforts over the past 10 days with large demonstrations around the capital.
Their other key demands are changing the constitution to be more democratic and reforming the monarchy.
The implicit criticism of the royal institution has irked conservative Thais because the monarchy traditionally has been treated as sacrosanct and a pillar of the country's identity.
The protest outside the prison was relatively low-key but there are concerns that the weekend may bring a confrontation as a deadline for Prayuth's resignation set by the student-led protesters comes due.
Several protesters said they intended to stay outside the prison overnight.
