The article focuses on the short-term political risk in Thailand. Thailand's royal family, which rarely gets publicly involved in politics, has called for greater efforts to restore peace in the country's increasingly bloody Muslim south. A day after Queen Sirikit urged all Thais to work with the government in its fight against the violence, which has left over 500 people dead since the start of the year 2005, King Bhumibol Adulyadej called on security forces in the region to work harder. The article also includes short-term political risk figures in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.
