Around a dozen protesters gather in Yangon's Tamwe township to burn copies of the 2008 constitution. This comes a day after a group of ousted parliamentarians acting as an underground parallel administration(known as the Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw), announced the abolition of the military drafted constitution.
Protesters in Yangon's Sanchaung area use fire extinguishers to cover their retreat during clashes with security forces. At least seven people were killed as Myanmar security forces fired on pro-democracy protesters, after the junta pressed criminal charges on half a dozen detained journalists, including an Associated Press photographer.
Myanmar protesters pray for the recovery of a 20-year-old woman who was shot and injured at an anti-coup protest on February 9. She is currently in critical condition at hospital.
On the second day of coup, Yangon residents protest against the coup by banging on pots and pans. People are waiting for 8 p.m. (local time) when they start hitting pots and pans on the street and in their homes for some 15-30 minutes.
