Bangkok on high alert following terror threat

By Simon Farnsworth

The US embassy in Bangkok has issued a warning to all of its citizens over a “credible” terrorism threat in the Thai capital.

This comes after two suspected Hezbollah militants entered Thailand with one being arrested.

Bangkok... "Credible" terrorism threat today

Thai authorities were made aware of a terrorism plot, with origins in Lebanon, at the end of 2011 by Israeli authorities. They have since worked closely together to prevent an attack.

This morning US ambassador, Kristie Kenney, sent an emergency message to all American citizens stating that “foreign terrorists may be currently looking to conduct attacks against tourist areas in Bangkok in the near future.”

The statement went on to warn citizens “to keep a low profile in public areas, particularly areas frequented by foreign tourists.”

Thailand’s Deputy Prime Minister Chalerm Yoobamrung announced that one man had been taken into custody and moved to assure people that the situation would be under control.

He told AFP news agency that “the police will take care of the situation and everything will be under control.”
