Myanmar military bans Twitter and Instagram
The opposition to the military takeover in the country has been growing ever since it took over power and detained the leader of the civilian government Aung San Suu Kyi and others on February 1. University teachers in the largest city of the country Yangon demonstrated in support of detained leader Aung San Suu Kyi by displaying the three finger salute and wearing the red ribbon, reports the BBC. Similar protests were reported from other regions like the Kachin state and Sittwe in Rakhine province. Earlier, residents of Yangon and some other cities in Myanmar had protested by banging pots and honking cars against the military government. However, the situation has remained largely peaceful in the country.
