Bangkok Governor pleads for non-violence


BANGKOK, 10 February 2014  Bangkok Governor M.R. Sukhumbhand Paribatra calls on all sides to stop using violence after workers of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) were wounded by explosives near a rally site at Phanfa bridge.

During his visit to two injured BMA workers at the Vajira hospital on Monday, the governor said he felt sorry that the workers were victims of the incident and gave morale support to them. M.R. Sukhumbhand urged all sides who had different political opinions not to commit violence since most of times the victims were innocent people who had nothing to do with their conflicts. The governor added that he had instructed all BMA civil servants and workers to put safety first when working.

Six BMA workers in total were injured by the explosions–two of them have been admitted at the hospital.
