Myanmar coup: Military take control of the country, as leader Aung San Suu Kyi detained

Army chief Min Aung Hlaing has taken power in Myanmar, as the military detains politicians from the ruling National League for Democracy (NLD).

They claim electoral fraud, after the military-backed USDP performed poorly in November's election.

Civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi told her supporters to "protest against this coup", in a pre-prepared statement before her arrest in the early hours of Monday morning.
