Myanmar security forces disperse anti-coup protesters

YANGON, MYANMAR (AP) — Security forces in Myanmar’s largest city yesterday fired warning shots and beat truncheons against their shields while moving to disperse more than 1,000 anti-coup protesters.

The demonstrators had gathered in front of a popular shopping mall in Yangon, holding placards and chanting slogans denouncing the February 1 coup even as the security presence increased and a water-cannon truck was brought to the area.
