Eight Anti Coup Protesters Killed in Myanmar

At least eight anti-coup protesters were killed on Friday 19th in Aungban, southern Shan State, during an attack by the Myanmar military junta on demonstrations that took place in the morning.

 According to Myanmar residents, 16 military trucks loaded with more than 100 policemen and soldiers arrived at the scene at around 9:00 a.m. and began shooting at protesters. Seven died at the scene, and another protester who had been shot in the neck was taken to Kalaw Hospital and died by 11:00 a.m.

On the other hand, a Myanmar resident Nay revealed that police and soldiers had destroyed the doors of nearby homes to arrest people and that at least 10 people had been detained.

“Initially, police arrived at the site. When the crowd surrounded the police, armed soldiers arrived at the site and began firing,” he told Myanmar Now. “In the coming days, if we cannot gather to protest, we will do it in our residential areas.”

She also added that the forces have developed a tendency of using drone inspection cameras to inspect the activities of the night guards from 3:00 a.m. until 5:00 a.m. every day. This has further installed a lot of fear amongst them.

This comes at a time Myanmar security forces had murdered at least 38 citizens on March 14th. Besides, Chinese-funded factories were also set ablaze. Earlier on, Myanmar had accused China that it was involved in supporting the military coup by importing weapons used by the military and some unknown goods in the country. A move that perhaps could have angered them and attributed to the recent attacks.

However, leader Suu Kyi is still in police custody after her hearing that was set for March 15th was postponed to March 24th.

Leader Suu was detained by the Myanmar Military coupe after she was accused of being involved in the fraudulent elections that took place last year on November 20th.

According to the court, Suu accepted illegal payments of $600,000, which is equivalent to 65,400,000.00 Kenyan Shilling plus gold while she was still in Government.
