Myanmar’s Military Stages Coup, Detains Aung San Suu Kyi And Other Leaders

Myanmar’s military has reportedly declared a state of emergency and taken power for one year after arresting the country’s top political leaders.

Myanmar’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi, President Win Myint and other officials from the governing National League for Democracy (NLD) were detained by the military early Monday morning.

“With the situation we see happening now, we have to assume that the military is staging a coup” the NLD’s spokesman Myo Nyunt said to Agence France-Presse.
