  • Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Myanmar Anti Coup Protesters Defy Military, Flood Streets After Two Shot Dead” – below is their description.

    Myanmar’s anti-coup protesters swarmed streets across the country in what may be the largest turnout since the Feb. 1 coup after two demonstrators were shot dead over the weekend.

    On Monday afternoon, hundreds of thousands of protesters marched throughout Yangon, while similar numbers were seen demonstrating in Mandalay, the location of the weekend’s shooting, after gathering there in the morning. Earlier in the day, video footage posted by local media showed large demonstrations in the capital of Naypyidaw and the southwestern city of Pathein.

    The European Council on Monday condemned the military coup, calling for an immediate end to the state of emergency and “the restoration of the legitimate civilian government and the opening of the newly elected parliament.”

    “The EU stands ready to adopt restrictive measures targeting those directly responsible for the military coup,” the bloc said in a statement.
