Burma Protesters Record deaths

UN in Myanmar is horrified by the needless loss of life today with reports of dozens of people shot dead by the military across the country. The violence is completely unacceptable & must stop immediately. Those responsible must be held to account.

Myanmar, many protesters have reportedly been killed on the 76th Armed Forces Day today. The Day marks the start of resistance by independent power against the Japanese occupation in 1945.

Myanmar security forces kill at least 114 people, including children, as protests against military coup continue, according to local mediaThousands of protesters took to the streets across Myanmar on Saturday, as the country’s ruling military celebrated the annual Armed Forces Day holiday with a parade in Yangon. Security forces killed dozens of protesters in what local media is saying was the deadliest day since the military coup that took place last month. An estimated 400 people have been killed since early February.

Local media reported that up to 114 have been killed, although the numbers are difficult to confirm.

Coup leader Min Aung Hlaing in his live broadcast today in the Armed Forces Day TV address pledged on elections but gave no timetable.

He said violent acts that affect stability and security in order to make demands are inappropriate.

The killings drew international condemnation, with multiple diplomatic missions to Myanmar.

The European Union’s delegation to Myanmar said on Twitter that the Armed Forces Day will stay engraved as a day of terror and dishonour. It said the killing of unarmed civilians, including children, are indefensible acts.
