Around 547 out of a total of 770 students arrested by Myanmar’s military regime are still being detained for taking part in anti-coup protests across the country.

Around 400 of the student detainees, who include student union leaders, have been charged by the junta, while more than a dozen students have gone missing during the crackdowns on anti-regime protests, according to the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners and the University of Yangon Student Union.

“The main reason why students have to come out on the streets is to protest against the military regime for seizing power from a democratically-elected government,” said the member of Mandalay University’s Student Union.
