Myanmar: internet restored as Aung San Suu Kyi’s detention extended

Government workers on strike as protesters take to the streets despite presence of army tanks in major cities

Internet services have been restored in Myanmar after an eight-hour blackout as it emerged that civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who was detained in a coup two weeks ago, would be remanded for a further two days.

Demonstrators again returned to the streets of major cities on Monday despite security forces deploying armoured vehicles. Extra troops were seen in key locations of Yangon, the nation’s commercial hub and biggest city, including armoured personnel carriers near the central bank.
