Thai military tries to mediate between rivals

A month after military coup, army leaders try to bridge divide between red and yellow shirts.

    A month ago the Thai military took power in a coup after months of unrest that had destabilised the government and split the country into rival political camps.

    Now the army is trying to bridge the divide between the red shirt supporters of former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and their yellow shirt opponents.
