A total of 48 countries have issued travel warnings to tourists intending to visit Thailand on concerns over possible political violence, Sukree Sithivanich, deputy governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), said on Saturday.

Mr Sukree said Laos is the latest country to have issued travel warning for its citizen to avoid travelling to Thailand, particularly the areas where the emergency decree is imposed and the rally sites of the anti-government protesters.
