Celebrations for Thai king’s 88th birthday

Thai people were marking the 88th birthday of their king Bhumibol Adulyadej, the world’s longest-reigning monarch on Saturday.

Though the King is now in a Bangkok hospital and unseen in public for three months, many celebrations were held on this occasion.

600 thousand people have also signed up for a cycling event on Dec. 11 to mark the King’s birthday.

The King’s latest ailment was a lung infection in September which required him to be fed intravenously and use a machine to help breathing.
