The military said it arrested 11 people at this latest protest. Three were injured - one is in critical condition.

The military did not confirm whether a truck had driven into the group, but said it had dispersed a "rioting" crowd.

Local news agency MPA said it believed two of its reporters were among the detainees. One of them appeared to be injured, and they had lost contact with the other, the agency said.

The anti-junta protest was one of at least three held in Yangon on Sunday. Since military forces have often opened fire on protesters in the past, demonstrations are often held in small organised groups to minimise casualties.

"I got hit and fell down in front of a truck. A soldier beat me with his rifle but I defended and pushed him back. Then he immediately shot at me as I ran away in a zigzag pattern. Fortunately, I escaped," a protester told Reuters news agency.

The UN has said that the military's crackdown could amount to crimes against humanity, but its envoys have repeatedly been denied access to Myanmar to investigate.

The junta has justified the pre-dawn coup in February by alleging there was voter fraud in last year's general elections, which the party of Myanmar's then-leader, Aung Sang Suu Kyi, won by a landslide.

Independent election monitors say the vote was largely free and fair, and criminal charges brought against Ms Suu Kyi have been widely criticised as politically motivated.

Many of the activists who led the peaceful civil disobedience movement earlier this year have gone into hiding, or gone to border areas to get military training from the ethnic insurgents based there.

Armed volunteer people's defence forces in towns and villages across the country have carried out hundreds of bombings and assassinations targeting officials working with the military government.

The military has responded with a scorched-earth campaign against areas where armed resistance has been strongest, burning houses and driving tens of thousands into the forests and over the border to India.
