Long queues of people withdrawing money from Myawaddy, a military-owned bank, were seen on Tuesday (Feb 16) after Myanmar’s military junta imposed a cap on the amount of money allowed for withdrawal.

"The military is keeping our money in the bank by force, which means they are unjust, isn't it?" said Yar Zar when met by reporters at the bank in Yangon.
