ICYMI – Protests in Myanmar, Himalayan’s glacier flood
Myanmar’s military coup was a big story last week. And no one covered it like Reuters.
Protests denouncing the coup and demanding the release of Aung San Suu Kyi continue, and tense scenes are registered as police fire shots in the air and use water cannons to break up the gatherings.
Meanwhile, hundreds of military personnel have been deployed in the Indian Himalayas to help find the missing after a part of a glacier that broke away and damaged a hydroelectric dam, setting off a torrent of water, rock and dust down a mountain valley. At least seven people have died and up to 170 are missing.
