LONDON, Sept. 17 (UPI) — British nationals are advised against traveling near large gatherings in Bangkok through Sunday as Red Shirt demonstrations could turn violent, London warned.
The British Foreign and Commonwealth Office said so-called Red Shirt protesters are preparing demonstrations in Bangkok and Chiang Mai to mark the anniversary of a 2006 coup.
The warning said demonstrations will end with gatherings Sunday in Bangkok.
“British nationals should avoid all demonstrations or large gatherings, which may turn violent,” the warning stated. “There is also a risk of violent incidents, including bomb attacks, around this time, especially in Bangkok.”
