U.S. State Department updates travel warning for ThailandMay 28th, 2010 - 4:42 am ICT by BNO News
WASHINGTON, D.C. (BNO NEWS) — The U.S. State Department on Thursday updated a travel warning for Thailand as political issues causing the demonstrations and violence have not been resolved.
“Due to recent violence in central Bangkok, demonstrations in Chiang Mai, and other incidents throughout Thailand, the Department of State recommends against non-essential travel to Thailand at this time,” the U.S. State Department said.
The State of Emergency and curfew imposed by the Thai Government remain in place. “We recommend you follow local media for the latest developments on these issues.”
“You should expect to see more security forces personnel in the streets. You might encounter them at roadblocks or other security checkpoints. If you encounter police or military personnel, you should obey all instructions from them. Be sure to carry identification and proof of your U.S. citizenship at all times to present if asked by authorities,” the U.S. State Department added.
