BANGKOK, Feb 28 – The ‘Yellow Shirt’ People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD) on Monday vacated some parts of Ratchadamnoen Road which they have occupied for over a month after a police operation to regain traffic lanes for the public.

The police asked for cooperation from the protesters to reopen the protest site and the PAD agreed to open two of six lanes to traffic.

Some 700 police led by Metropolitan Police Bureau chief Pol Lt-Gen Chakthip Chaichinda and Metropolitan Police Division 1 chief Pol Maj-Gen Wichai Sangprapai dismantled a half dozen PAD tents to open traffic in two lanes in front of the Education Ministry near Makkhawan Bridge, the Yellow Shirts’ main protest site.
