Thailand's army is to send troops and vehicles to escort protesters away from rally sites, a senior army official told Reuters shortly after the military staged a coup today.
"We will send troops and vehicles to help protesters leave all rally sites," General Teerachai Nakwanit, First Regional Army Commander, told Reuters.
Protesters from pro and anti-government groups have been rallying at sites in and around Bangkok as part a protracted political crisis.
