iREPORTERS SIGNED UP
Created January 14, 2014 by
After weeks of protests, the Thai military has declared that it’s taken control of the nation’s government in a coup. Martial law was imposed on May 20, and the military chief says it now controls the government. The military has also imposed a curfew from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. local time.
Violent and deadly protests have wracked the country since November. The clashes are rooted in tensions between pro- and anti-government groups over Thailand’s leadership.
