Thai soldiers take protest leader from meeting: witnesses

BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thai soldiers on Thursday took the leader of anti-government protests out a meeting of all factions, though the reason was not immediately clear, witnesses said.

Hundreds of extra troops arrived at the venue from where Suthep Thaugsuban, who has been leading more than six months of anti-government protests, was taken away.

An army source said the army commander, who declared martial law on Tuesday, would soon make a statement.
