Ousted Thai cabinet minister condemns coup; arrested

A Cabinet minister who defied orders to report to Thailand’s new military junta emerged from hiding Tuesday to condemn last week’s coup and urge a return to civilian government, in the first public appearance by any member of the ousted government.

Education Minister Chaturon Chaisang also warned that resistance to the army overthrow could grow, which would “lead to a disaster for this country.”
