BEIJING OLYMPICS/TORCH RELAY
Thai govt confident of smooth passage

The Thai government is confident that it will be able to conduct an Olympic torch relay next week without disruptions as had happened in the cities in the US and in Europe.

Maj-Gen Sanan Kachornprasart, Deputy Prime Minister and chairman of the torch relay organising committee, said there would be no violent protests in Thailand during the Olympic torch relay scheduled for April 19.

Thailand is one of 20 countries chosen to host the torch relay. The Chinese embassy has reportedly called for tight security measures in Thailand to fend off possible protests by pro-Tibet activists during the Olympic torch relay in Bangkok.
