Thailand's prime minister Friday lifted a state of emergency that was imposed in the capital after rioting by anti-government protesters. Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva made the announcement at the end of a two-day special parliamentary session aimed at finding a solution to the country's political crisis. "Lifting the state of emergency is one of the measures to find a solution for the country," Abhisit told the parliamentary session. "The government wants reconciliation and to move the country forward." The state of emergency was imposed April 12 following rioting in Bangkok. Two people were killed and 123 injured as protesters clashed with troops and residents.
