Thailand's weekly cabinet meeting on Tuesday decided to extend the Internal Security Act (ISA) for seven more days to April 6, Thai News Agency reported.

Actually, March 30 is the last day of the ISA enforcement in capital Bangkok and neighboring Nonthaburi and Samut Prakan, after it has been imposed from March 23.

The ISA will still be imposed for the whole area of Bangkok, while only two districts of Nonthaburi and five other districts of Samut Prakan will be under its enforcement.

The Thai cabinet's decision to extend the ISA law was made as the red-shirted protesters have announced that their mass anti- government rally will be prolonged.

Tens of thousands of protesters, led by the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) group, have converged in Bangkok since March 12 to press the Thai premier to dissolve the Lower House of parliament and call a new election.
