YouTube says it has immediately removed these channels from the video-sharing platform under its Community Guidelines.

According to YouTube, Myanmar’s state-run network Myanmar Radio and TV and other military-owned channels have been removed from the platform.

On the other hand, an Indian group has claimed that a group of Myanmar police officers have tried to cross the border and seek refuge by disobeying the orders of higher authorities.

In addition, Myanmar’s deputy ambassador to the United Nations has refused to take charge as ambassador, after Myanmar’s ambassador was fired for speaking out against the military leadership.

According to media reports, 55 people have been killed so far in the ongoing protests since the military coup in Myanmar, which has been strongly condemned by the world powers.

It should be noted that on February 1, the army seized power in Myanmar and sent home the elected government and arrested several leaders against whom there is a strong protest and civil disobedience movement across the country.

People on the streets against the military coup are demanding the immediate end of military rule and the release of arrested leaders, including Aung San Suu Kyi.
