In early morning raids Monday, Myanmar's military has taken control of the country and declared a state of emergency after detaining State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi, President U Win Myint, and other senior government leaders.
The military confirmed it had detained the country's de facto civilian leader Suu Kyi, along with other high ranking National League for Democracy (NLD) leaders, in response to alleged voting irregularities in November's election.
