Bangkok, Thailand
 — The Thai military has taken control of the government in a coup, the country’s military chief announced in a national address Thursday. Military officials also imposed a curfew from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. local time (11 a.m. – 6 p.m. ET), authorities said in a televised address. The developments are the latest in a chain of failed attempts to defuse tensions that have simmered since November. The discord has its roots in politics, and led to both pro- and anti-government factions to fight over the country’s leadership. Three days ago, the military imposed martial law in an attempt to end the instability, but said it was not a coup. Now, it has taken power outright. More
