Facebook and other services the social media giant owns are being temporarily blocked in Myanmar on Thursday after the country's military seized power in a coup earlier this week, according to a report by internet monitoring service NetBlocks on Thursday.

NetBlocks said state-run internet service provider MPT and telecommunications company Telenor Myanmar restricted Facebook and several apps the company owns, including photo-service Instagram and messaging services WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger. MPT and Telenor Group didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

The country has returned to dictatorship.. I can only hope they don't start killing the protesters many of who are teachers and children.

This is really sad. If the government of these poor people was a democracy and they had their freedom like we do in America, they wouldn't be fearing for their lives right now. There's nothing America or NATO can do about it without China and Russia, along with their allies intervening. That's too close to China's border.
