In Myanmar , hundreds of people have marched through Yangon to oppose changes to a protest law limiting free speech.

Nearly 190 Myanmar civil society groups have signed a petition against the amendment.

Amendments to the 2011 Law will bring three-year prison terms for supporting a demonstration that harms rule of law and stability of the state.

Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi 's ruling National League for Democracy is backing the changes amid rising concern that her administration failed to protect human rights.APP/AFP
