Police in Myanmar arrested five students on Friday from among a crowd of about 200 protesters locked in a standoff with security forces barring their entry into the commercial hub of Yangon, a Reuters witness said.

The arrests follow rising tension between the government and students protesting for months against an education bill.

Protesters say the bill curbs academic independence by stifling student unions and putting decisions in the hands of the government rather than universities.

A group of students began marching from the central city of Mandalay more than a month ago, but police stopped them in Letpadan, 140 km (90 miles) from Yangon, and blockaded them behind vehicles and barriers.

The government has barred them from Yangon, Myanmar's largest city and the site of numerous student-led protests, including those in 1988 that sparked a pro-democracy movement that spread throughout the military-ruled country.

On Thursday, police and plain-clothes vigilantes detained eight people who had gathered in downtown Yangon to show solidarity with the Letpadan protesters. Some were beaten with batons, witnesses said.
