Security reinforced in key places in Bangkok


BANGKOK– Security has been heightened in business areas and at the Government House following a bomb attack on Monday.

A group of soldiers from the 3rd Special Forces Regiment arrived at the Government House to provide safety for government officials, replacing the old security team as part of a six-month service rotation.

Permanent Secretary of the Office of Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) Pattarut Tantaranon has instructed every unit under the BMA to raise security levels across Bangkok. They have been told to ensure that CCTV cameras are operational and that government buildings, bus stations, and public places are protected around the clock.

The security plan that was implemented during the previous unrest in Bangkok will be reintroduced to maintain peace and order in the capital city for the time being.
