Still Safe in Bangkok Thailand

Foreign residents and tourists are being warned to avoid areas where the red shirt demonstrations are taking place.

Acting government spokesman Panitan Wattanayagorn said yesterday foreigners were still free to travel, but they should stay away from the protest sites for their own protection.

He said the state of emergency declared by the government on Wednesday appeared to be having little immediate effect on foreign residents and tourists.

The decision to declare the emergency was to ensure peace, stability and a return to normalcy as soon as possible, he said.
