The UN says at least 18 people have been killed in Myanmar in the deadliest day yet of protests against the military coup.

Witnesses said five people had died in the south-eastern city of Dawei, while others were reported killed in at least two other cities, including Yangon where police opened fire to disperse crowds, as well as stun grenades, tear gas and water cannon.

And a warning – there are distressing images in this report by our Foreign Affairs Correspondent Jonathan Miller.
