Myanmar coup: Anti coup protesters return to streets and world leaders condemn military’s brutal crackdown

Anti coup protesters have been back on the streets across Myanmar – despite yesterday’s bloodshed when security forces shot more than a hundred people dead. In one town forces reportedly opened fire on mourners at the funeral of a student who was among those killed.

Leaders across the world have condemned the brutal crackdown – including the US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken – who said the people of Burma rejected the military’s “reign of terror”. A warning – there is distressing footage in this report.
