    Fifteen countries today issued warnings to their citizens asking them to avoid travelling to areas near the anti-government rallies in Bangkok after the opposition called for a three-day nationwide strike.
    England, France, Sweden, Japan, Canada, Australia, Israel, Brazil, Singapore, Belgium, Spain, Netherlands, Norway, Germany and Hungary have issued travel advisories, Tourism Authority of Thailand governor Surapol Sawetseranee said following anti-government protests enveloping parts of Bangkok during the last few days.

    Around 50,000 Thais clustered in the political heart of Bangkok last night, with some 2,500 anti-government protesters remaining on the streets today against a proposed amnesty bill, which was rejected by senators in a unanimous vote yesterday.

    The bill, if adopted, could have paved the way or the return of former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra who is Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra’s brother and could have also possibly absolved him of corruption charges.
