Points
  • Protesters against military rule marched in Myanmar on Saturday, three months after a coup ended the country’s democratic transition, with several small blasts compounding a sense of crisis that a United Nations envoy warned could bring state administration to a halt.
  • The military has tried to end dissent and impose its authority on a people largely opposed to rule by generals after 10 years of democratic reforms that included a government led by democracy champion Aung San Suu Kyi.
