The Thai Government announced this week that they were extending the mourning period of the late king Bhumibol Adulyadej by an additional two days.

Following a cabinet meeting on Tuesday (October 10) government spokesman Col Thaksada Sungkajan announced that the cabinet had agreed to extend the mourning period until October 29.

During the funeral services national flags at all government offices and embassies will be flown at half-mast out of respect for the late king.

She said that all black and white signs and banners are to be removed from all government offices and roadside before the end of October 29.

October 30 will mark the end of the mourning period and all government employees and members of the public can wear normal attire once again.
