Thailand’s King dies after 70 years as head of state.

Thailand’s King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the world’s longest-reigning monarch, has died after 70 years as head of state.

 

The 88-year-old king was widely revered but had been in poor health in recent years, making few public appearances.

 

He was seen as a stabilising figure in a country hit by cycles of political turmoil and multiple coups. Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn will be the new monarch.

 

The king’s death comes as Thailand remains under military rule following a coup in 2014.
