The latest development added to fears that the unrest in the capital, which has witnessed a see-saw battle between the police and the protesters led by People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD) to take control of the government seat on Friday, will spread to provinces nationwide.

Prayuth Tiraksa, a PAD leader in Phuket, said the protester started blocking the road at 2:00 p.m. Some flights at the two southern airports(Phuket, Hat Yai) were delayed or would be redirected, especially those with foreign passengers.

Airports of Thailand Plc, the operator of Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport and four international airports in provinces — Phuket, Hat Yai, Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, on Friday has raised the level of security alert.
