Police have been ordered to be on alert to prevent possible copycat suicides by supporters of the Dhammkaya Temple, deputy police spokesman Pol Col Krissana Patanacharoen said Sunday.

The order was given after a protester hanged himself on Saturday in a protest against the siege of the temple.

Krissana said the Royal Thai Police has prepared crowd control companies with full gear to handle the situation at the temple.
