- +

The army will do all it can within the scope of law to protect the general public from anti-government and anti-election protest violence, spokesman Col Winthai Suwari said on Wednesday. 

 Col Winthai said the military is working with the Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order (CMPO) to adjust security measures in line with the evolving political situation.

Army soldiers, in particular, will be deployed to provide security in more areas, he said.

On recent attacks on anti-government protesters, Col Winthai said he believed police would step up efforts to resolve the cases and arrest the culprits.
