As the struggle against military rule intensified in Myanmar, armed war vehicles appeared on the streets in many cities of the country.
Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi’s National Democratic Party registered a resounding victory in last November’s election. However, the military refused to accept the new government citing election irregularities.
As the conflict between the Myanmar government and the military continued, the army overthrew the rule of Aung San Suu Kyi-led party on 1 January.
The army has arrested and detained prominent political leaders and senior government officials, including Chief Aung San Suu Kyi and President Win Mind. The army has announced that military rule will run in the country for the next one year, after which elections will be held and power will be handed over to the winner.
The United States, the United Kingdom and the United Nations have strongly condemned military rule in Myanmar and demanded the immediate release of imprisoned political leaders.
The civil strife against military rule in Myanmar has intensified. The order said, “If convicted, he faces a jail term of six months.” However, for the last few days people have been protesting on the streets in the main cities of Myanmar.
Armed war vehicles appeared on the streets in several Myanmar cities in preparation for the breakout. Internet service has been completely stopped from 1 am local time.
Telecom companies have said that they have been instructed to cut Myanmar’s Internet services between 1.00 pm and 9.00 pm local time. According to a monitoring group called NetBlock, after the Internet ban in Myanmar, only 14% of regular Internet service users were present.
