Myanmar’s military leaders have extended their detention of deposed leader Aung San Suu Kyi, whose remand was set to expire on February 15.

Suu Kyi will now be remanded until Feb. 17, when she will likely appear in court by videoconference, according to Khin Maung Zaw, a lawyer asked by Suu Kyi’s party to represent her.

Meanwhile, protesters continued to gather across Myanmar on Monday following a night in which authorities cut the country’s internet access and increased the security presence in major cities seeking to curtail demonstrations.
