Thailand’s junta has lifted a night-time curfew nationwide.

The midnight to 4 a.m. curfew was lifted in Bangkok and all provinces shortly after junta chief, General Prayuth Chan-ocha, announced his intention to do so in a Friday night address on public TV, the Bangkok Post said.

The curfew had already been lifted previously in 25 provinces, including popular tourist destinations such as Pattaya, Phuket and Samui Island.

Mr. Prayuth, who staged a coup on May 22, reiterated in his address that an interim government was expected to be set up by September.
