Text size Aa Aa

It has been a day of return for thousands of Bangkok office workers as the city reopened for business after one of the country’s worst riots.

Traffic filled the streets and children went back to school with few traces of the former anti-government protest barricades left in place.

Nonetheless, Thai authorities have extended a curfew in Bangkok and 24 provinces for seven days, amid fears some groups and individuals may spark unrest.

During the fighting, about 40 buildings were set on fire.

More than 50 people died and hundreds more were injured during the violence.
