The Peace-keeping Operations Command on Sunday issued the 6th order, which would block the anti- government red-shirts from marching to and staging protests at other important roads, the website by the Nation newspaper reported.

Col. Sansern Kaewkamnered, spokesman of the Peace-keeping Operations Command in a TV-pool program Sunday afternoon, gave a list of roads where "suspected instigators" are prohibited to enter.

"Those who want to enter the prohibited sites have to get permission from authorities concerned," Sansern said.

And, those who violate the order would face one-year jail term and/or a fine of 20,000 baht (618.24 U.S. dollars ), he warned.

Altogether 11 roads, including Silom, Charoenkrung, Surawongse, Rama IV and Ratchadapisek, have been prohibited for the red-shirts ' rally.

The order was signed by Deputy Prime Minister Deputy in charge of security affairs Suthep Thaugsuban, who is also director of the Security Operations Command.

The red-shirts have been occupying the Rathchaprasong Junction and the Phan Fah Bridge in Bangkok as they are pressuring the Prime Minister to dissolve the lower House of parliament.
