  • CNN reports from inside Myanmar. Here's what we're seeing

Anti-coup protesters raise decorated Easter eggs along with the three-fingered symbols of resistance during a protest against the military coup on Easter Sunday in Yangon, Myanmar.

In Mandalay, the country's second largest city, protestors gathered at dawn on motorbikes to shout their defiance of the power grab that overthrew the democratically elected government.

A total of 557 people have been killed in coup-related violence since February 1 as of Saturday, according to the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners, a monitoring group. It said Sunday that 2,658 people were now detained or had been sentenced.

Pope Francis, in his Easter Sunday address at St. Peter's Basilica, prayed for the "young people of Myanmar committed to supporting democracy and making their voices heard peacefully, in the knowledge that hatred can be dispelled only by love".

Sunday's so-called "Easter Egg Strike" follows other themed days.

CNN is the first worldwide media organization to be given permission to enter the Southeast Asian nation since the military unseated the civilian government in a coup on February 1 and began waging a brutal clampdown on pro-democracy protesters, which has left more than 550 people dead, according to the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners, an advocacy group based in neighboring Thailand.

They included a "Flower Strike", in which protestors laid flowers in public places to honour those killed by security forces, and a "Silent Strike", in which people across the country left the streets deserted.

Security forces continued to spread fear among ordinary citizens.

At other times, soldiers and police keep up their intimidation at night with raids on neighbourhoods, during which they shout abuse, shoot at random, make arrests and vandalise property.

After weeks of overnight internet cutoffs, the military on Saturday shut all links apart from those using fiberoptic cable, which was working at drastically reduced speeds.
