Thai army arrests hundreds under martial law

Rights groups say detainees being denied access to legal advice, but army says they are being treated in line with law.

    Hundreds of people have been detained by the Thai military since martial law was imposed three months ago.

    The army says it invoked the measure to restore peace and order following months of anti-government protests.

    The military insists all prisoners are being treated in line with human rights laws, but rights groups say detainees are being subjected to interrogations without legal advice.
