Bankok under Martial Law

Category : Equipment, General Info

bankok(Reuters) – Thai PM Yingluck Shinawatra extended on Monday an Internal Security Act to cover more areas of the capital, Bangkok, Nonthaburi just to the north, and districts to the east including where Bangkok’s main airport is located.

Yingluck, addressing the nation on television on a day anti-government protesters swarmed into, or around, state buildings in a bid to bring down her government, said the security act was being extended because of “ongoing events”.

The act allows authorities to impose curfews, operate checkpoints, restrict movements of protesters and act fast if rallies get out of hand.
