Thailand's king keeps high public profile during extended stay

Three protest leaders released by court but hurt in botched re-arrest attempt

BANGKOK -- King Maha Vajiralongkorn has been unusually visible in public during his longest stay in Thailand since his accession to the throne in 2016, despite major youth-led protests in recent weeks demanding reform of the monarchy.

The king who spends most of his time in Germany is now expected to stay in the kingdom until the end of December, sources say.
