Myanmar military says it is taking control of the country; detains Aung San Suu Kyi – Eagles Vine

YANGON: Myanmar military television says the military has taken control of the country for one year.
An announcer on military-owned Myawaddy TV made the announcement Monday morning.
Myanmar’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been detained by the military, her party spokesman said early Monday.
“We heard the President (Win Myint) and State Counsellor (Aung San Suu Kyi) have been detained in Naypyidaw… we heard they were taken by the military,” said Myo Nyunt, spokesman for the ruling National League for Democracy.
“With the situation we see happening now, we have to assume that the military is staging a coup,” he added.
Her detention comes after a week of ramped up rhetoric from the military, whose spokesman on Tuesday refused to rule out the possibility of a coup.
