Many sources (such as Jonathan Head @pakhead, BBC corespondent in BKK) reported that there is going to be a very important announcement around 5.30 pm. (GMT+7) announced by the palace.

Rumours abound here in Thailand, but we have to wait patiently for the official announcement by the Palace, expected at 6pm. 😢

I've had Thai television on this morning via an online stream. It went suddenly from a piece about computers to a placecard which said "National Council for Peace" and then began showing footage of the King with sad music over the top of it. Therefore, I think it's now safe to say that the rumours are true and the King has indeed died. How sad.

I pray for the King wether he is still with us or not and for the unity and stability of Thailand.

We all know that the inevitable has happened. Still, it will not be official until announced by the Palace. It's a very sensitive issue for all Thai people. Now we heard that the announcement is coming at 7pm, but who knows...

Reuters is now quoting a palace statement which says the King died this morning.

His Majesty passed away at 3.52 pm. (GMT+7) on October 13, 2016, official statement said. Now all television channels and media in Thailand turn their screen in black color.
