The Israeli embassy has asked the Metropolitan Police Bureau (MPB) to step up safety measures for tourists on Rambutri and Khao San roads until Tuesday after an alleged terrorist plot to attack Israelis in the area was foiled. 

MPB chief Kamronwit Thoopkrachang said yesterday he had received a letter from the embassy asking for extra protection for tourists staying on the popular backpacker roads in Bangkok's Phra Nakhon district. 

The letter was sent in response to the arrest of two suspected terrorists in Bangkok at the beginning of Songkran, which coincides with the Jewish Passover.
