Myanmar anti-junta protesters rally in Bangkok

Bangkok (AFP) – Outside of the United Nations office in Bangkok, hundreds protest against Myanmar’s junta to mark the third anniversary of an army coup that ended the country’s fledgling democracy, repeatedly raising the three-fingered salute that has become a symbol of anti-coup demonstrations. The Southeast Asian country’s military is facing its toughest challenge since seizing power in 2021, with a coalition of armed ethnic minority groups making gains in the north.
