Army moves in heavy guns, tanks

The army has announced it plans to move heavy artillery and armaments into Bangkok Monday night.

The announcement was to allay any fear of a military coup. The army said the heavy artillery and armaments including tanks were transported from Prachin Buri to Bangkok for the parade marking Army Day on Jan 18.

More armaments from Saraburi, Lop Buri and Chon Buri will arrive for the occasion later. 

The army said people should not feel nervous about a military coup. The force had planned to relocate the armaments to Bangkok this Saturday and Sunday but moved the date up to avoid the anti-government shutdown next Monday.
