When some people from the armed forces take control of the government, also known as coup d´etat (French expression). Unfortunately it was very common during the 20th century in Latin American countries.

Military coup - golpe militar - coup d'état

A coup d'état [ko?o"d? tä]), or simply coup, is the sudden overthrow of a government, often through illegal means by a part of the state establishment — mostly replacing just the high-level figures. It is also an example of political engineering. It can be (although not necessarily) violent, but it is different from a revolution, which is staged by a larger group and radically changes the political system through unconstitutional means.
