U.S. Suspends Military Assistance to Thailand

The United States said on Friday it has suspended $3.5 million in military assistance for Thailand, about one-third of its aid to the ally, after the army seized power.

According to AFP, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said that the United States was also reviewing the rest of U.S. aid to Thailand - which totaled some $10.5 million in 2013 - to look for further cuts.
