Military Overthrows Thai Government

Now this should put the fear of God into unpopular and corrupt leaders leaving their countries for a UN shindig.
THAILAND fell to a bloodless coup under the cover of monsoon rains last
night as tanks and Humvees surrounded Government House and took control of radio and televisions in the capital Bangkok.

From New York Thaksin Shinawatra, the controversial Thai Prime
Minister, declared a “severe state of emergency” after calling the Channel 9
television station in the capital. But he was cut off mid-speech.
