    Myanmar authorities have warned “action” would be taken against protesters who break the law as huge crowds demonstrated against a military coup.

    Police fired water cannon at peaceful demonstrators in Myanmar’s capital Naypyidaw as thousands of people took to the streets of cities across the country for a third day on Monday to denounce last week’s putsch.

    The ruling generals have so far refrained from using deadly force to quell demonstrations but have a long history of doing so in previous times of tumult.

    Al Jazeera’s Scott Heidler reports.
