BANGKOK -- Protesters against the military coup in Myanmar marched on the country's streets Monday for a 10th day, while the army deployed armored vehicles and soldiers in major cities to tighten the junta's grip on power. Protesters also gathered around the central bank, asking people to join a boycott of the military leadership.

While tensions rise, the lawyer for ousted de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi said she would remain in detention at least until Wednesday.
