    BANGKOK, Thailand (CNN) -- Tanks have been seen rolling through the streets of Bangkok, Thailand, on Tuesday amid rumors of an attempted coup, witnesses tell CNN.

    Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who is currently at the U.N. headquarters in New York, has been under considerable pressure to step down.

    According to officials at the Thai mission at the United Nations, Thaksin has moved up his speech to the General Assembly to Tuesday night and will return to Bangkok after his address.

    He had been scheduled to address the assembly on Wednesday.

    Elections in Thailand are scheduled for November after the country's constitutional court ruled April's vote was unconstitutional.

    Thaksin had called for the elections in April, three years early, after opponents accused the billionaire leader of abusing the country's system of checks and balances and bending government policy to benefit his family's business.
