Myanmar goes into emergency

Myanmar’s military declared a one-year state of emergency on Monday and appointed a general as acting president.

The army also arrested civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi and other senior officials.

An announcement on military-owned Myawaddy TV said the move was needed to preserve the “stability” of the state, accusing the country’s election commission of failing to address “huge irregularities” in the November election.
