Myanmar: Protests proceed for third day

On Monday, tens of thousands of people across Myanmar took part in a third day of protests.

It’s been a week since the army took power and members of the National League of Democracy – which won parliamentary elections in November – were arrested, including its leader, Aung Sang Suu Kyi.

In a televised speech, coup leader General Min Aung Hlaing argued that the civilian leaders had failed to hold proper elections and promised new elections in a year’s time.
