Tensions over the past few days have stirred fears of a coup in the aftermath of an election the army says was fraudulent.

Spokesman Myo Nyunt told the Reuters news agency by phone that Ms Suu Kyi, President Win Myint and other leaders had been “taken” in the early hours of the morning.

He said: “I want to tell our people not to respond rashly and I want them to act according to the law.”

He added he is also expected to be detained.
