Suu Kyi’s party won a set of elections that the military says were tainted by fraud. The government has said its takeover was constitutional. Allegations of fraud have been dismissed by the country’s electoral commission.

It was reported that the number of protesters killed is much lower and that members of the armed forces have also been killed. In response to threats to national security, it said its response met international standards.
