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.

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