Britain eases advice against travel to Thailand

Britain's Foreign Office eased its advice against travel to the Thai capital on Tuesday, as Bangkok slowly returned to normal after protests and riots.

Britain had advised against all travel to Bangkok earlier this month as battles between the military and anti-government protesters raged, eventually killing 85 people and wounding more than 1,400. Anti-government leaders have since surrendered.

"We are now advising against all but essential travel to Bangkok. This replaces the previous advice, which advised against all travel to Bangkok," the Foreign Office said in a statement.
