China alerts citizens to Bangkok bloodshed
(02-25 14:53)

The Chinese embassy in Thailand warned citizens to keep away from rally sites and surrounding areas in the chaotic Thai capital Bangkok now going through spasms of violence.
This is the fifth travel advisory the embassy has issued since the political unrest in November 2013.
Chinese have been urged to avoid the Ratchaprasong area in Bangkok, where a number of popular tourist destinations are located, according to a statement on the embassy website.
The embassy also asked citizens to keep clear of several other rally sites and surrounding areas in Bangkok, including the Government House, Government Complex, Lumpini Park, Sala Daeng, Asoke and Pathumwan.—Xinhua
