Thai government officials are also expected to propose a seven-day extension of a curfew in the capital, state media reported.
Officials will propose extending the curfew in Bangkok and nearly a third of the country's provinces until May 31 in a cabinet meeting Tuesday, Col. Sansern Kaewkamnerd said, according to Thailand's state news agency. Intelligence reports show anti-government groups are still trying to cause chaos, he said, according to the agency.
Officials imposed the curfew Wednesday night after government troops surged into Lumpini Park, where anti-government Red Shirt demonstrators supporting former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra had amassed. In months of protests, the demonstrators demanded that the current prime minister dissolve parliament and call new elections.
