On 9 February 2021, large-scale protests continued throughout Myanmar for a fourth consecutive day. Multiple demonstrations occurred in Yangon, including in front of the U.S. Embassy, at the National League for Democracy headquarters and at the Hledan Junction Skyway located in western Yangon, amid a heavy security presence. There were no reports of protest-related violence in the city. Earlier in the day, in an effort to limit the size of protests, authorities closed the Thanlyin-Yangon, Theketa and Hliang Thar Yar bridges — which all lead to downtown Yangon — from 0400 to 0800 local time (2130 to 0130 UTC).
In the capital Naypyitaw, security forces fired live rounds into the air and used rubber bullets to disperse protesters after using water cannons unsuccessfully. At least six people suffered injuries, including two individuals who were hospitalized in critical condition. In Mandalay, security forces used tear gas to disperse a large demonstration after several unsuccessful attempts with water cannons. Security forces also arrested approximately 100 to 200 protesters, including one journalist. In Bago, a city located approximately 60 km (38 mi) northeast of Yangon, security personnel also used water cannons to disperse a large demonstration. Protests were also reported in the cities of Magway, Monywa and Pathein.
