Security forces in Myanmar have been stepping up their efforts to crack down on demonstrations against a military coup, with the number of deaths exceeding 50 since the coup took place about a month ago.

Memorials for those killed in protests were held in many parts of the country on Thursday.

UN special envoy on Myanmar Christine Schraner Burgener told a news conference on Wednesday that at least 38 people were killed on that day alone, as security forces fired on protesters in the country’s largest city Yangon, the second largest city Mandalay and other cities. She said at least 50 people had been killed since the coup began on February 1.

Demonstrations against the military coup were continuing on Thursday. Protesters, carrying home-made shields, were heard chanting, “Down with the autocrat,” and “Restore sovereignty back to the people.”

Local media said security forces were firing on the protesters in Yangon, and other cities, raising fears that there will be more casualties.

The United States has told China it expects it to play a constructive role, he said. China has declined to condemn the coup, with Chinese state media calling it a “major cabinet reshuffle”.

The European Union said the shootings of unarmed civilians and medical workers were clear breaches of international law. It also said the military was stepping up repression of the media, with a growing number of journalists arrested and charged.

The military justified the coup by saying its complaints of voter fraud in the Nov. 8 vote were ignored. Suu Kyi’s party won by a landslide, earning a second term.

The election commission said the vote was fair.

Junta leader Senior General Min Aung Hlaing has pledged to hold new elections but given no time frame.
