BANGKOK – Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said Tuesday that the authorities would maintain emergency rule in the capital following a deadly bombing over the weekend.

“I think Bangkok will remain under the state of emergency while the government will gradually lift the law in other provinces,” he told reporters after meeting security officials.

The bomb, which killed one person and wounded 10, exploded at a bus stop in the same commercial district occupied by anti-government “Red Shirt” protesters during a two-month-long rally that ended with an army crackdown in May.
