Foreign Affairs Correspondent

At least two people have been killed in Myanmar after riot police fired live rounds to disperse crowds protesting against the military coup.

Witnesses said police opened fire at demonstrators in the country’s second largest city, Mandalay. One victim was shot in the head and died at the scene, the other died on the way to hospital.

Protestors were forced to flee as security forces chased after them.
