Myanmar’s UK ambassador has been locked out of the country’s London embassy after calling for the release of detained leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

Kyaw Zwar Minn told Reuters news agency “I have been locked out”, having spoken out against the military coup that has gripped the country since February.

His deputy has barred him and taken charge of the building on behalf of the military, according to unnamed sources quoted by Reuters.

Metropolitan Police said there was a protest outside the embassy in Mayfair on Wednesday evening and that public order officers were on the scene, but that no arrests had been made.

At least more 15 people are reported to have been killed in Myanmar on Wednesday when troops opened fire on protesters, according to activists and media in the country.

Dozens are also said to have been wounded in yet another day of violence.

The army ousted Myanmar’s elected government on 1 February, claiming there had been voter fraud in last year’s election.

The independent election commission said there was no evidence to back that up and many people are now regularly being shot dead at protests over the power grab.

Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, leader of coup, claims protesters are trying “destroy” the country.
