Crowds of demonstrators remain to gather in Myanmar’s most populous cities. Human rights groups say security forces are arresting democracy advocates in nighttime sweeps. Protesters are denouncing the arrest of the country’s leader, Aung San Suu Kyi.
The military claims that Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy party only won November’s general election because of widespread cheating. The BBC’s Nyein Chan Aye said. “Security forces are raiding people’s residences in many places across the country and trying to arrest those who are against the military junta. People are protecting each other, staying up late at night.”
