    Sister Ann Rose Nu Tawng begged a group of heavily armed police officers to spare ‘the children’ and take her life instead, kneeling before them in the dust of a northern Myanmar city.

    Her act of bravery in the city of Myitkyina on Monday came as Myanmar struggles with the chaotic aftermath of the military’s overthrow of the civilian leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, on 1 February.
