Human rights abuses and human lives have also been lost as a result of the military coup.
More than 200 people have died so far and Myanmar has turned into a war zone as a result of the military’s crackdown on unarmed civilians. Many civilians have been arrested and held as political prisoners for staging anti-coup protests.
