Thai Military Takes Over in Yet Another Coup

CNN – Thailand is now under military control — with its military chief in power, its constitution tossed, its political leaders detained, its citizens under martial law — thanks to a coup that capped months of unrest.

Thursday’s announcement, in a televised address by the Asian nation’s military chief, followed a last-ditch meeting purportedly aimed at resolving the crisis.

Leaders of the governing Pheu Thai Party, the opposition Democrat Party, the anti-government protesters, pro-government “Red Shirts” as well as the military were among those in attendance.
