Military seizes power again in Myanmar, detains Suu Kyi
Myanmar's military commander-in-chief Min Aung Hlaing has taken over power alleging fraud in the recent elections which Suu Kyi's party had won.

NAY PYI TAW, Feb 1: The military has taken over in Myanmar (Burma), detaining civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi, President Win Myint and others of the ruling party. A one-year state of emergency has also been declared, a statement on military TV said.

The coup follows a landslide win by Suu Kyi's party. She has been the de facto ruler. The military accused the ruling party of election fraud.

The Chief Minister of Karen State and several other regional ministers were also held.

Myanwar had ended an earlier, nearly five-decade long milirary rule after protracted struggle spearheaded by Suu Kyi in 2011. She was detained for 15 years from 1989 and had become a symbol of the movement for democracy in Myanmar and the world. Internationally acclaimed, she received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991.

Early on Monday the military said it was handing over power to commander-in-chief Min Aung Hlaing because of "election fraud". Soldiers are on the streets of the Capital, Nay Pyi Taw, and the main city, Yangon, reported BBC.

The military said it found millions of irregularities in the parliamentary elections also contested by the army-backed Opposition in November. The Election Commission rejected the claims.

Gen Min Aung Hlaing had said last week the country's 2008 Constitution could be "revoked" and tensions were mounting.

The November polls were the second since Myanmar ended the 49- year military rule in 2011.

Internet and phone services in major cities have been blocked and the banking operations have come to a standstill.

Reacting to the development, US President Joe Biden's spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement, "The United States opposes any attempt to alter the outcome of recent elections or impede Myanmar's democratic transition, and will take action against those responsible if these steps are not reversed."

Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne said, "We call on the military to respect the rule of law, to resolve disputes through lawful mechanisms and to release immediately all civilian leaders and others who have been detained unlawfully."
