Myanmar: police fire stun grenades at protesters in Yangon

Guardian, 02 Mar 2021
Clashes between police and protesters in Myanmar are continuing despite a crackdown by the authorities. Security forces were filmed using stun grenades and water cannon on demonstrators in Yangon and Kale. Member nations of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) are expected to hold a conference call with a member of Myanmar's military to urge them to resolve the demonstrations peacefully. The military overthrew Aung San Suu Kyi's elected government on 1 February. Since then, 21 people have been killed and more than 1,100 arrested
