Myanmar protests resume after violent crackdown and internet shutdown.

Anti-coup protests in Myanmar resumed on February 16 following violence against protesters by security forces and internet shutdown for a second straight night. Protesters also blocked train services between Yangon and Mawlamyine, hours after a UN envoy warned of severe consequences against any harsh response to the pro-democracy demonstrations. Security presence was low-key during the protests with most police guarding key buildings in the city, such as state banks branches. People of Myanmar are protesting against the February 1 military coup and demand that the nation’s elected leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, and members of her ousted government be freed from detention.
