. Myanmar coup: Fear and defiance at night-time arrests « JO LEE MAGAZINE

BBC NEWS/People in Myanmar are reacting with defiance as authorities use night-time raids to arrest opponents of the military coup.

Mass protests have taken place since the military seized control of the South East Asian country on 1 February.

The army announced on Saturday that arrest warrants had been issued for seven prominent opposition campaigners.

They are wanted under the rarely used charge of “disturbing tranquillity”. One of them, Min Ko Naing, was one of the student leaders involved in the failed 1988 uprising against the then-military dictator.
