Public anger at the Thai military's coup grew as more than one thousand protesters shouting "Get Out!" marched across the capital Bangkok in defiance of an army warning against protests.

Demonstrators began marching in the Chidlom district and made their way across the city to the Victory Monument cheered by onlookers, after a tense standoff with armed soldiers in the city's retail heart.

It was the largest expression of dissent since the army seized power on Thursday after months of political turmoil.

There was no sign of soldiers or police on the streets during the march today, which went ahead despite a junta statement calling on people not to protest and a martial law ban on gatherings of more than five people.
