The peace-keeping operations command is established at the 11th Infantry Regiment in capital Bangkok to control the anti-government rally, Deputy Prime Minister in charge of security affairs Suthep Thaugsuban disclosed Thursday.

The operation of the peace-keeping operations command in the 11th Infantry Regiment locating at Bangkhen will start from Friday (March 12), Thai News Agency quoted Suthep as saying.

Also, during the rally a press conference to update the actual situation will be held at the peace-keeping operations command in the 11th Infantry Regiment, he said.

Deputy premier Suthep has been assigned to control the security operations, which have been conducted by involved security agencies.

Thailand's weekly cabinet Tuesday decided to impose the Internal Security Act (ISA) during March 11-23 to ensure law and order in a mass anti-government rally by the United front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) group and from late Wednesday night security men have been deployed to ensure security.

Totally, under the ISA law's enforcement there are 50,000 security men, who will maintain security during the mass rally, said Suthep.
