Martial law was instituted in Thailand on Tuesday, although the military insisted it was just restoring order and mot staging a coup, CNN reported. But that changed on Thursday as the top general declared a takeover of the government in a televised address.
Thailand’s military chief said the action was necessary because rival factions were unable to form a government.
