Myanmar’s military has seized power after detaining civilian leader, Aung Suun Suu Kyi and other senior members of her governing party.
All authority has been given to the top army commander and a one year state of emergency has been declared.
The coup follows a landslide win by Ms Suu Kyi’s party in an election which the army claims was marred with fraud
She urged her supporters not to accept the coup instead protest against it.
