250,000 to attend royal cremation

Bangkok: About 250,000 Thai citizens are expected to attend the royal cremation of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej at Sanam Luang in Bangkok on Oct 26, Deputy Prime Minister Gen Prawit Wongsuwan said.
If Sanam Luang becomes overcrowded, the authorities will seek the cooperation of mourners to place funeral flowers at replicas of the royal crematorium at various sites around Bangkok instead, Prawit said.
He was speaking after a meeting of the committee tasked with providing security and traffic during the royal cremation.
Spanning five days from Oct 25-29, the cremation will be an event infused with Buddhist ceremonies, cultural performances and mysterious palace rituals.
Prawit said about 70,000 state officials and employees would provide security at Sanam Luang and some registered volunteers would also be there to help.
