Thailand’s Prime Minister has declared that order has been restored after Wednesday’s army crackdown, and promised an independent probe into the events surrounding the red shirt protests in the capital.

Abhisit Vejjajiva also called for reconciliation to heal deep political divisions that led to widespread violence and more than 80 deaths in two months.

”Fellow citizens, we all live in the same house. Now, our house has been damaged. We have to help each other,” Mr Abhisit said in an address to the nation, as a huge clean-up got under way.
