 In Myanmar, the military seized power, and Aung San Suu Kyi was arrested

In Myanmar, the military seized power and arrested Aung San Suu Kyi and other leaders, announcing the imposition of a one-year amnesty.

 According to the foreign news agency, the internet and communication connections in Myanmar started to be disrupted from 3 pm last night. In Yangon city, the army has taken control of the city hall and several military trucks have been seen in the city hall.

According to media reports, in a video message broadcast on Army-administered television, the senior general said that the powers have been handed over to the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces while a state of emergency has been declared in the country for a year.

A spokesman for Aung San Suu Kyi's party claimed that key leaders of the ruling party, including the president, had been arrested.

The party spokesman said that the current situation was such that a military coup and seizure of power was taking place.

Tensions between Myanmar's military and civilian government have risen sharply following the disputed election results.

On the other hand, the United States and Australia have demanded the immediate release of the elected leaders and the United States has warned Myanmar of possible retaliation.

A White House spokesman said the United States would take action against those responsible if steps were not taken.

It should be noted that the government-sponsored atrocities against the Burmese Muslims in Myanmar have been carried out and Aung San Suu Kyi has been blamed for the atrocities against the Muslims, while many awards have been withdrawn from Sochi after the atrocities against the Burmese Muslims.
