BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand's army said on Tuesday that 10 satellite television channels must stop broadcasting, including stations run by pro- and anti-govt groups, in order to "preserve peace and order".
The army declared martial law earlier on Tuesday to restore order after six months of anti-government protests.
"The army asks that satellite television channels stop broadcasting in order to prevent the distortion of news, which creates misunderstanding," the army said in a televised statement.
