Chidren, the elderly, and women have remained with the anti-government protestors at the rally site in central Bangkok, Social Development and Human Security Minister Isara Somchai said Tuesday morning.

"By now, none of the children, elderly, and women have been separated from the protestors," the National News Bureau of Thailand quoted Isara as saying.

Also, they have not yet contacted with concerned agencies for help, Isara added.

The ministry has prepared measures and officials to advise for these people whenever they need help, the minister said.

Facilities, including shelters and foods have been prepared, while transportations are also available for those who want to return home, said Isara.

The Interior and Transportation Ministry and Thailand's national police are also ready to help facilitate the protestors, the minister said.

The intense political situation in capital Bangkok has continued as troops' operations have continued to besiege the main rally site Rajprasong area, aiming to pressure the anti-government protestors to end their over-two-month long rally.
