The reason behind the coup is that the military has said that it took power because the November elections won by Aung San Suu Kyi's party were fraudulent. This claim, however, has been dismissed by Myanmar's election commission.
Suu Kyi is still in detention at an undisclosed location. Many other figures in her party are also reportedly in custody.
