On February 1, 2021, Myanmar’s military junta detained civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi and deposed her democratically elected government. The generals accused Suu Kyi and members of her party, the National League for Democracy, of election fraud. Soon after, the military announced a one-year state of emergency, with power handed to the head of the military, Senior General Min Aung Hlaing.
