BANGKOK – THOUSANDS arrived in busloads to pray outside a Bangkok hospital on Friday for the swift recovery of Thai King Bhumibol Adulyadej, a day after concerns about his health sparked the biggest slide in a year in Thai stock prices.

As Thais queued up to sign get-well books at Siriraj Hospital where the world’s longest-reigning monarch has spent the past 27 days, investors returned to Thailand’s bourse, lured by bargains in a market that has jumped more than 50 per cent this year.

Since he was admitted, 573,360 people have signed the get-well books.
