Myanmar coup: Ousted leader faces new charges as protests continue following deadliest day

Myanmar’s ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi is facing new charges Monday as police and protesters clashed again in the country, after what has been considered the deadliest day of clashes when 18 people died Sunday during a crackdown by security forces.

Suu Kyi originally faced two charges of illegally importing walkie-talkies and violating Myanmar’s natural disaster law during the COVID-19 pandemic, but she has now been additionally accused of using illegal communication equipment and causing "fear and alarm."

The charges come as police fired tear gas in several cities and broke down barricades set up by protesters in Yangon.
