BANGKOK, April 2 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock
markets closed higher on Thursday, with stocks in Singapore
posting modest gains ahead of a market holiday while select Thai
tourism-related stocks advanced after the government lifted the
martial law.
    Bangkok's SET index was up 0.4 percent amid
selective buying in aviation stocks such as Airports of Thailand
 after the military government said on Wednesday it had
lifted the martial law imposed before a coup 10 months ago.
 
    Singapore's key Straits Times Index ended up 0.2
percent, while the Jakarta composite index was down 0.2
percent. Both stock exchanges are closed on Friday for a public
holiday. 
    The Philippine stock market is closed on Thursday and 
Friday for public holidays.
