Dont go to Bangkok!! Bangkok Dangerous! staring Red Army!

BANGKOK: Malaysians have been advised to consider cancelling any plans to visit Bangkok, in view of the escalating tension between the government and supporters of ousted prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra.

The Malaysian Embassy here said they should stay away from the capital and five provinces which were under a state of emergency unless really necessary.

The advice comes as Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban announced that police and soldiers, deployed to more than 50 areas, have been given the go-ahead to use force to bring peace and normalcy to the capital.

An embassy official advised Malaysian tourists in Bangkok to exercise caution. The embassy, which is located in Sathorn Road, will set up a 24-hour operations room to monitor the situation and provide advice to Malaysians in Thailand.

The hotline number is +66-2-6296808. — Bernama
