Thailand remains under martial law. This gives the military expanded authority to take action it deems necessary to enforce law and order, including to restrict movement, impose curfews and introduce other security measures. Singaporeans should avoid any protests and their vicinity, monitor local news closely and follow the instructions of local authorities. On 1 February 2015, Thai authorities reported that two small improvised explosive devices exploded at the Siam station of Bangkok’s Skytrain System, in close proximity to the Siam Paragon shopping mall. On 7 March 2015, the authorities reported that a grenade exploded outside the Bangkok Criminal Court in the Chatuchak district.
