Myanmar Military Coup: YouTube Removes Five Myanmar Military-Run TV Channels From Platform

YouTube has removed 5 channels of Myanmar's military-run television networks hosted on its platform following its overthrow of the government in the Southeast Asian country.

"We have terminated a number of channels and removed several videos from YouTube in accordance with our community guidelines and applicable laws," a YouTube spokesperson told Reuters.

Early February 2021, the Myanmar army seized control of power while alleging mass fraud in the November election won by Aung San Suu Kyi's government.

The channels which were removed last week include the state network, MRTV, (Myanmar Radio and Television) as well as the military-owned Myawaddy Media, MWD Variety, and MWD Myanmar, YouTube said.

The removal of these channels comes following the killing of 38 people on Wednesday, which is the bloodiest week so far as security forces tried to crush rallies using live rounds in some areas.

Facebook banned MRTV pages in February, while it had previously barred Myawaddy in 2018 when it banned Myanmar army chief Min Aung Hlaing (who is now the military ruler) and other senior army officers and organisations on the platform.
