Leaders of the politically powerful student movement demanded that the 65-year-old former field marshal be put on trial for the death of 72 civilians during the student-led uprising in October 1973 that overthrew his military government and sent Thanom into exile.  The students accused Thanom fere nee of ordering the military and police to shoot at the students,  Bangkok and the commander of the armed forces was in the Philippines on a tour of Southeast Asia.  Word of the former dictator's return immediately sparked a series of emergency meetings Prakorb met with the cabinet, deputy military commanders and King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s Privy Council; the National Assembly went into closed session, and leaders of the student movement held an urgent con-  ponce to snoot at the students, c *    r    I  and they demanded the death D 3 19 O n tXpGIS   pena,ty     ’Rolling    Stone’  Before Dawn    —„  Thanom has been living inCorrespondent  Boston with his wife and some members of his family since the coup.
