PM warns of more violence in Thailand

Thailand’s prime minister warned Wednesday of intelligence forecasting more violent attacks as police arrested a former soldier suspected of involvement in a string of recent Bangkok bombings.

“There remains a group of people who want to employ violence,” Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva told reporters, adding that there was not specific information about where attacks could occur. “We must be vigilant.”

Abhisit’s government has cited recent grenade attacks in Bangkok as justification for keeping in place a state of emergency imposed during weeks of anti-government protests that ended in May with an army crackdown. Rolling clashes between troops and Red Shirt protesters killed 90 people and wounded more than 1,400 in the demonstrations’ final weeks.
