BANGKOK (AFP) - Thailand's coup leaders on Thursday ordered members of the now-deposed government's cabinet to report to the military by the end of the day.

"In order to keep peace and order, the National Peace and Order Maintaining Council orders these persons to report themselves to the Council by May 22," said a statement read out on television by the military.
