Police tighten security outside US embassy in Bangkok
BANGKOK: Thailand Deputy Prime Minister Chalerm Yubamrung on Tuesday said that he has ordered Police to tighten security at the United States embassy in Bangkok amid reports of planned demonstrations against an anti-Islam film, Thai News Agency (TNA) reported.
Demonstrators are expected to assemble at Lumpini Park before marching in front the embassy. They plan to burn American flags in their protest against the film "Innocence of Muslims".
However, Chalerm said he believes the demonstration would not turn violent, adding that police units would also be deployed to secure US companies in the capital.
The US embassy, meanwhile, was closed to the public on Tuesday noon due to the planned demonstration. Bernama
