The Thai authorities have extended a curfew in Bangkok and 24 provinces for seven days because of concern about possible unrest, an army spokesman said on Monday.
"We have information that there are groups and individuals who still want to create chaos in some areas," Sansern Kaewkamnerd told a news conference.
The curfew, from midnight to 4 a.m., must be formally approved by the cabinet at its weekly meeting on Tuesday, he added.
The curfew came into effect on May 19 after riots and arson broke out across Bangkok following an army crackdown to disperse anti-government protesters occupying a commercial district in the capital.
