The US has suspended $3.5m in military aid to Thailand and urged the country's army to restore civilian rule "immediately".

Washington also urged tourists to cancel trips and halted non-essential visits by US government officials.

The move came as former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra spent her first night in military custody.

She was detained along with dozens of political figures on Friday as the coup leaders tightened their grip on power.
