San Francisco, March 6 : In the wake of further violence in the country, video-streaming platform YouTube has taken down channels connected to five TV stations run by Myanmar’s military (Tatmadaw).
The video-streaming platform told the New York Times it removed the channels for breaking its community guidelines but it didn’t explain the decision any further.
According to an Engadget report, among the removed channels were ones for Myanmar Radio and Television and Myawaddy Media, which air news, sports and Tatmadaw propaganda.
Dozens of peaceful protestors were killed this week during demonstrations against last month’s coup, the report said.
Protesters have organized rallies online and shared footage of violence carried out by the military and police.
The Tatmadaw responded by blocking social media services and occasionally shutting down internet access entirely.
