Myanmar coup: At least 3 killed as police disperse protesters

At least 3 people have been killed in protests in Myanmar against a military coup, the worst violence yet in more than two weeks of demonstrations, writes BBC.

Police used live ammunition to disperse demonstrators in Mandalay, reports from the ground said. At least 20 people were injured.

Hundreds had gathered for the rally at a shipyard in Myanmar’s second largest city. The coup saw the overthrow of Aung San Suu Kyi’s elected government.
