Breaking news on Yahoo today... Thailand declares martial law this morning

BANGKOK (AP) — Thailand's army declared martial law in a surprise announcement in Bangkok before dawn on Tuesday, intensifying the turbulent nation's deepening political crisis. It was not immediately clear whether a coup d'etat was underway.

The move came after six months of anti-government demonstrations aimed at ousting the government and one day after the Southeast Asian country's caretaker prime minister refused to step down.

The army said in a statement that it had taken the action to "keep peace and order" and soldiers entered several private television stations that are sympathetic to protesters.

A ticker on Chanel 5, an army station, however, denied the military was taking over, saying "the invocation of martial law is not a coup."

Thailand's army has staged at 11 successful coups since the end of absolute monarchy in 1932.

Thailand's army invokes martial law, says move is "not a coup"

BANGKOK (AFP) - Thailand’s army on Tuesday declared martial law across the crisis-gripped kingdom to restore order following months of anti-government protests that have left 28 people dead and hundreds wounded.

An announcement on military-run television said martial law had been invoked “to restore peace and order for people from all sides", stressing that the move “is not a coup”.

“The public do not need to panic but can still live their lives as normal,” it added.

It was not immediately clear if the move – which gives the military control of nationwide security – had been approved by the country’s embattled prime minister.

The imposition of martial law risks angering supporters of the government if it is seen as tantamount to a coup.

Very coordinated... judicial coup then martial law. Tyranny of the mostly rich minority.

Looks like Thaksin will be staying in Dubai for a little longer.

At the rate this is going, it will affect their GDP especially tourism by a big margin.

That's why Jap band show revert to MIJ, at least for the export models to Sin.

 

Better yet, dedicated JDM models for export to Sin. Then can tell PI to FO liao.
