YANGON – Myanmar security forces cracked down on protesters again this week, causing four dead and five wounded.

The protesters have been calling on the military to release detainees including the state counselor, Aung San Suu Kyi, and the president, Win Myint. Security forces arrested many peaceful protesters and reporters during the crackdown.

This week, the Canadian embassy condemned the use of force by the military and called for full restoration of internet access and the lifting social media restrictions.
