The city police have stepped up security at the Cambodian embassy in Bangkok to prevent any possible incidents aimed at stirring up trouble.
Metropolitan Police Bureau chief Jakthip Chaijinda said on Tuesday he had ordered the Metropolitan Police Division 4 and the Wang Thonglang police station to deploy extra police outside the embassy on Pracha Uthit Road.
There would be extra patrols, including plainclothes agents, in the surrounding areas around the clock to guard against any incidents, said Pol Lt Gen Jakthip.
The extra security was aimed at thwarting possible sabotage by a third party that may want to further stir up border tensions.
Police were also monitoring the movements of the groups protesting against Cambodia over the recent border dispute, he said.
