Channel 4 News report on the near-total internet blackout in Burma, where the leaders of a military coup are facing a rising tide of protests.

The streets of the city of Yangon were filled with angry demonstrators, demanding the release of the country’s elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi who was detained following the army take-over last weekend.

Channel 4 News interviewed Wai Hnin Pwint Thon, Campaigns Officer at Burma Campaign UK and the daughter of Mya Aye, who was detained after the coup along with other democracy veterans.
