The Thai government ended a state of emergency in Bangkok, saying the measure had scared away tourists crucial to the country's economy.

Emergency rule was imposed Sept. 2 after a night of violent clashes between anti-government supporters and opponents left one man dead and dozens injured.

Images of the mayhem were broadcast around the world, prompting travel advisories from several countries. Calm was quickly restored.
