Thai military continues crackdown following detention of former PM Updated: 2014-05-24 18:15:15 KST

Turning to the latest on the tense and very fluid situation in Thailand
The military government has ordered 35 more people, including some prominent academics, to report to them as their crackdown continues.
Former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and another 1-hundred-50 other people, mostly political associates, are already being held by the military, which seized power in a coup Thursday.
The military council says it only plans on holding Yingluck and the others until matters in the country are organized.
A military official said the former prime minister should be free within a week.
Despite the coup, people still free to travel in, out and around the country and airports across Thailand are open.
The United States has suspended three-and-a-half million dollars in military aid to Thailand and told the army to restore civilian rule.
