Myanmar protesters wear flowers to mark Suu Kyi’s 76th birthday

YANGON: Anti-coup protesters in Myanmar donned flowers in their hair on Saturday to mark the 76th birthday of ousted civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who remains under house arrest and is due to face court again next week.

Suu Kyi’s elected government was overthrown in a February 1 coup that sparked mass protests and renewed clashes between the military and ethnic rebel armies in border regions.
