Thailand’s Grand Palace Opens for Mourners to Pay Respects to Revered King

BANGKOK – Thousands of mourners queued in front of the Grand Palace in Bangkok on Saturday morning, as its doors opened for people to pay their respects to the late king.

People from across the country, many of whom camped overnight, lined up outside the building waiting for the gates to open early Saturday morning, an epa journalist on the scene reported.

The mourners, dressed in black, were visibly emotional, with many wiping away tears as they queued up at entrance of the throne hall, where the body of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej is lying in state.

Authorities have said 10,000 mourners will be allowed into the throne hall each day.

The revered king, who was the world’s longest reigning monarch, died on Oct. 13 at the age of 88.

Following his death, a year-long period of mourning was declared.
