Myanmar streets empty in protest on coup anniversary


Streets in Yangon are empty as Myanmar marks the second anniversary of the coup that toppled Aung San Suu Kyi's government. Activists called for people across the country to close businesses and stay indoors from 10 am (0330 GMT) to 4 pm. Roads leading to the famous Shwedagon pagoda -- a Buddhist shrine that dominates Yangon's skyline and is usually thronged by worshippers -- were largely deserted. Myanmar has been in turmoil since the military's power grab and bloody crackdown on dissent, which has sparked fighting across swathes of the country and tanked the economy. IMAGES
