Thailand's Center for the Resolution of the Emergency Situation (CRES) ordered Special Branch Royal Thai Police to deploy 150 officials to provide 24- hour guard around Government House from Sept. 17 to Sept. 19 during the "red-shirt" movement's gathering, a report said.

Daily News online cited a report from the Government House as saying that CRES has also requested additional forces from Metropolitan Police Bureau and military to beef up security around the building.

Tightened security measure at the Government House was implemented amid the speculation of possible violence during the forthcoming re-gathering of the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship or "red-shirts" scheduled from Sept. 17-19 in a bid to mark the fourth anniversary of 2006 coup dtat.

The "red-shirt" protesters will hold activities in Bangkok and northern province of Chiangmai which include cycling around, tying red ribbons and placing flowers in front of prisons.

In their latest prolonged protest from March to May, 91 were killed and nearly 1,900 were injured during the course and in the military crackdown.
