The Tonga government Wednesday extended for another month the emergency regulations put in place in the capital Nuku'alofa after riots nearly two and a half years ago, Radio New Zealand International reported.

The regulations, which give the police and military extraordinary powers, apply to a specified zone in the heart of the city.

A government official of the Pacific island country said they have been advised by the security forces to continue with the controls.

Police Minister Siaosi Aho said the restrictions will last until the people living in the controlled zone feel safe.
