The military administration in Thailand on June 13 lifted the curfew across the country, citing the end of violence and the need to support the tourism sector as reasons for the decision.

In a televised announcement, the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) said as the situation has improved and there is no sign of violence and to support tourism, the curfew will be lifted in all remaining provinces.

Previously the military administration imposed a curfew from midnight to 4 a.m in 44 provinces, including the capital city of Bangkok. Last week, the curfew was lifted in 30 provinces, including major tourism hubs.-VNA
