Buddhist monks and nuns have joined Myanmar anti-coup protesters in a march in Mandalay on Thursday, calling for US intervention against the military junta.

Monks and nuns have been regular participants in the demonstrations and their presence is lending moral authority to the civil disobedience movement.

Tens of thousands have been marching in Myanmar’s major cities for weeks, despite police's increasing violence and threat of using lethal force.

They demand the military junta to stand down and to release detained civilian leaders.
