Widespread protests in Myanmar’s Yangon after NLD condemns coup, calls for leaders’ release.
The UN Security Council has failed to agree on a joint statement condemning Monday’s coup in Myanmar.
Aung San Suu Kyi was among dozens of political figures picked up by the army, and reportedly remains under house arrest.
The National League for Democracy’s (NLD) party has called for Aung San Suu yi immediate release and for the army to acknowledge the November 2020 election results.
In Myanmar’s largest city Yangon, residents banged pots and pans as part of widespread protests.
