    Protesters have returned to the streets in Myanmar, despite yesterday’s violence in which 38 people died.

    The opposition to the military coup has managed to bring ethnic groups together, in a country where minorities have been denied rights for decades.

    The mostly Muslim Rohingya suffered greatly under Aung San Suu Kyi’s government, and were forced to flee to Bangladesh.
