ADVISORY NOTICE FROM THE US EMBASSY IN THAILAND
A group calling itself the Committee for Democratic Reform under the Monarchy as Head of State has apparently seized control of the government institutions in Bangkok and declared martial law.
We have seen various reports that the military has deployed troops around key government facilities and other strategic locations around Bangkok.
There are no indications of any violence at this point.
We advise all American Citizens to continue to monitor the situation closely, avoid any large gatherings and exercise discretion when moving about the city.
At this point, we are not advising Americans to leave Thailand; however, Americans planning to travel to Thailand may wish to consider deferring travel until the situation becomes clearer.
The Embassy will continue to follow developments closely. If there is any important information regarding the security of US citizens the Embassy will post it on the U.S. Embassy Bangkok and Department of State websites.
