Thai army to send troops to escort protesters away from rally sites

BANGKOK (Reuters) - 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 on Thursday.

“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.
