Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said he was informed by the peace-keeping operations command Wednesday morning the red-shirted group headed to pour their collected blood at his residence, but there was nothing to worry about, a state-owned media reported.

The Thai prime minister's residence is located on Street Sukhumvit 31 in the center of capital Bangkok.

Also, in the morning Abhisit flew to a southern province of Songkhla to attend a funeral of former Bannang Sata police chief Sompian Eksomya, who was killed by a roadside bomb on Friday, the National News Bureau of Thailand (NNT) under the Public Relations Department of the government, reported.

Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban invoked the Internal Security Act (ISA) to ban the demonstrations on Street Sukhumvit 31, where the Abhisit's house is situated, from March 17 to 23.

Ten more companies of police and soldiers were deployed Wednesday morning to reinforce six companies of security officials at the premier's place.
