BANGKOK - A public holiday has been declared for today in Thailand, following Thursday's death of 88-year-old King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the world's longest-reigning monarch.

The holiday was declared after people already had left for work. And the stock market and banks remained open, as did Thai embassies worldwide.

But the government has urged people to refrain from organizing entertainment events for a month.
