At least 21 protesters have been killed in clashes in Myanmar’s main city Yangon as politicians removed from power by the military coup called for “revolution”.

Since the military coup on 1 February and detention of Aung San Suu Kyi, the country’s civilian leader and head of the National League for Democracy (NLD) party, Myanmar has been gripped by protests 

The NLD party won in last year’s election but the military alleged there had been widespread fraud and used that as excuse for the coup.

However, on Sunday, March 14, the protests took another turn as security forces opened fire in the Yangon area of the country while protesters used sticks and knives to defend themselves.

The military declared curfew in that area of the country after Chinese businesses were attacked as the protesters believe China is giving support to Myanmar’s military.

But the protesters defied the curfew leading to attacks from the military.
