Thailand's army has declared martial law in a surprise announcement in Bangkok.
It was not immediately clear whether a coup d'etat was underway.
The move comes after six months of anti-government demonstrations aimed at ousting the government. 
The army said in a statement that it took the action to ``keep peace and order." (AP)
