A boy holds a picture of Thailand's King Bhumibol Adulyadej as well-wishers camp outside the palace where he is staying in Hua Hin, Prachuap Khiri Khan province, a day before his birthday December 4, 2013. Thailand's government ordered police on Tuesday to stop confronting protesters in Bangkok demanding the resignation of the prime minister, raising hope that days of political violence may end. The government said it wanted to avoid more violence and ease the tension for the King Bhumibol Adulyadej's 86th birthday, a traditional day of prayer and celebration.
