Thai security forces thwart Bangkok attacks

Security forces in Thailand have thwarted planned attacks in Bangkok, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office disclosed yesterday.

The country suffered multiple explosions in tourist areas over three days in August and the country is in a one-year period of mourning following the death of King Bhumibol Adulyadej in October.

A bombing in the capital in August killed one Briton and left numerous casualties, with the country under a high threat from terrorism.

In an revised travel advisory, the FCO said: “Thai security authorities have said that in October 2016 they disrupted the planning of attacks in Bangkok; further incidents are possible throughout Thailand.

“The Thai authorities have on a number of occasions warned of the possibility of attacks to coincide with symbolic dates or holidays.

“You should exercise caution, particularly in public places, and follow the advice of local authorities.”
