Police deploy reinforcements after protesters began marching

BANGKOK, 27 November 2013 (NNT) - The police have sent reinforcements to deal with anti-government protests although the number of protesters is estimated to be on the decline.


National Police Chief Pol. Gen. Adul Saengsingkaew voiced belief that the protest situation in Bangkok would improve with less people joining in the rallies. He said the police were trying to prevent clashes between the protesters and other groups of people during the protesters' marches to various government offices.

Reinforcements have been deployed on concerns about ill-intentioned groups that might be looking to cause disturbances. The National Police Chief confirmed that the authorities’ operations would be in compliance with the Internal Security Act, with the use of negotiations upheld as the main approach.
