font size    

Coup rumors were widely spread Tuesday night after the Third and Fifth Army areas moved their four battalions out, a military source told Xinhua.

But officers from the two army areas said the forces were moved to be stationed in the three southern border provinces as part of personnel rotation there.

The 31st Infantry Regimen also moved out its personnel as part of the rotation with soldiers in the deep South, officers was quoted by the Thai multimedia group the Nation as saying.

The 23rd and 24th Cavalry Battalions and the Second Cavalry Division also moved out their personnel to rotate with soldiers at the Pha Muang Task Force in Phetchabun Province, reports said.

Some officers said the massive movements of the soldiers apparently led to the coup rumors, said the Nation.
