At least 18 people were killed as security forces in Myanmar fired on pro-democracy protesters on Wednesday, according to a human rights group. Earlier in February, Myanmar's military had staged a coup, detaining leader Aung San Suu Kyi along with senior members of the ruling National League for Democracy (NLD). The coup has sparked a major anti-coup agitation across the nation.
