Security is being tightened in Bangkok and nearby provinces following a tip-off about possible car bomb attacks later this month, a senior police officer says.

Deputy national police chief Srivara Ransibrahmanakul confirmed Monday police had received intelligence on possible attacks in three locations during Oct 25-30 in the capital and nearby provinces.

Pol Gen Srivara said authorities are on alert and have been told to step up both surveillance as well as intelligence operations.

He said while there are no specific targets, there will be extra-tight security in tourist spots, embassies and symbolic locations.

The deputy national police chief was speaking after chairing a two-hour security meeting with representatives from various police units including the Special Branch Police and the Immigration Bureau and state agencies.

Security authorities were reportedly told during the meeting to survey vulnerable locations and draw up action plans to counter attacks.
