Violence Erupts in Thailand

About 5,000 protesters remained on the streets in downtown Bangkok despite a government deadline to evacuate the area, according to CNN. At least 35 people have died in anti-government protests since last Thursday. The U.S. State Department issued a travel warning for Thailand, advising American citizens to defer all travel to Bangkok as well as nonessential travel to the rest of Thailand.

“As of now, all our international workers are safe in Bangkok and in Thailand,” says Alliance field director Steve Strong. “As long as we avoid the areas of confrontation between the protesters and the government troops, we should be okay. Please pray for a quick resolution and a peaceful and just ending to this crisis.”
