BANGKOK (DPA) — Thai authorities told the public Monday not to worry if they see tanks rolling into Bangkok later in the week.
Army officials told reporters that the army was merely moving equipment into the capital Thursday for its children's day exhibition.
Tanks, armoured personnel carriers and helicopters from various military bases will be transported into Bangkok for the Saturday event.
Army officials told dpa on Monday that this was not a signal of a another coup but an annual event organized by the military.
The military took power in a bloodless coup in May, placing tanks and armoured vehicles at key intersections throughout the city to maintain order.
