Thailand's Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej said Friday that Thai authorities will not tolerate any protest aimed at disrupting the Beijing Olympic torch relay in Bangkok on Saturday.

"There are no reasons to disturb the ceremony because it is purely a sports issue. On Saturday, we will complete the 10-km run," Samak said after a cabinet meeting.

"Strict measures will be taken against disruptive protesters," he said. "Thailand will act with responsibility."

The torch arrived here from India early Friday. The relay will begin at the Chinatown Gate at 3 p.m. (0800 GMT) Saturday and end at the Royal Plaza in the evening.
