    Protests against a military coup in Myanmar took a violent turn as police pushed back on demonstrators. Police fired shots into the air and used water cannons to push crowds back in the capital city of Napyitaw.

    The crackdown came as mass rallies erupted for the fourth straight day against last week’s military takeover to oust civilian leader Aung San Suui Kyi, with demonstrators choosing to defy a ban on gatherings of more than five people that was introduced by the junta on Monday.

    Four people were reported to be injured in Napyitaw, with wounds suspected of being from rubber bullets, a doctor from an emergency clinic told Reuters.
