Two people have been killed in protests in Myanmar against a military coup, the worst violence yet in more than two weeks of demonstrations.

Reports from the ground said police used live ammunition to disperse demonstrators in Mandalay.

At least 20 people were injured.

Hundreds had gathered for the rally at a shipyard in Myanmar’s second largest city.

The coup saw the overthrow of Aung San Suu Kyi’s elected government.

The European Union said it strongly condemned the violence and the US embassy in Myanmar said it was deeply troubled about the crisis.#
