Dozens Killed In Myanmar`s Violence Worst Day Since Coup
At least 38 people have been killed after Myanmar security forces opened fire on peaceful anti-coup protesters in multiple towns and cities.
According to the United Nations, Myanmar police officers and military have increasingly used lethal violence in an attempt to crush demonstrations killing more than 50 people since the coup on 1st February. UN special envoy stated that it was the bloodiest day since the coup as 38 people were killed and now more than 50 people have died since the coup started.
Protesters continuously emerge in crowds daily in defiance of the military junta demanding that the military restore democracy and for their elected leaders to be released. Among those who were killed on Wednesday, February 3 include a 19 yr old woman whose images showed her wearing a T-shirt that read Everything Will Be Okay and a teenage boy aged 14 years.
A witness told the Guardian that security forces are using deadly forces in several cities including Monywa where six people were killed and at least 30 injured. He further added that police shot at anyone on the road declaring that they are not terrorists but civilians who are trying their best to get their democracy back.
Almost 1300 people have been detained since the military seized power including the country`s ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi who faces four charges and the president Win Myint.
