Myanmar: Protests continue, powerful Buddhist group signals break with junta

Daily protests have been ongoing for more than a month in Myanmar since the military ousted the civil government and arrested de facto leader Aung Sung Suu Kyi and other political leaders.

Security forces, made up of police and military personnel, have intensified a brutal crackdown that includes shooting protesters and overnight arrests.

At least 180 people, including children, have been killed since the coup on February 1, according to the United Nations Human Rights Office.

More than 2,100 people have also been detained, often during overnight raids.
