After Myanmar Coup in Myanmar, now things are getting worse. Even after 18 people were killed in police action, supporters of Myanmar leader Aung Sang Suu Kyi are on the streets in thousands. Sunday was the most violent day after the coup.
In the firing of security forces, there have been confirmed deaths of people from the cities of Yangon, Dawei and Mandalay. Many countries around the world, including America, have expressed serious concern over this violence.
An official from the Human Rights Office said there is ‘strong information’ that at least 18 people have been killed and more than 30 injured in the crackdown on protesters protesting against the coup in Myanmar. It is being told that the police opened fire in Myanmar’s largest city Yangon and fired tear gas shells and water cannons to remove the protesters from the streets.
Meanwhile, furious with bloody violence, the US has said that it will take ‘additional action’ against Myanmar. He said that in this regard, the US will discuss with its allies in the Indo-Pacific region so that those responsible for the violence can be held responsible.
In the footage being shared on social media, it is seen that the police have made a fierce ordeal against the protesters, in which many people were bled. The repression cycle of police started on Saturday reached its peak on Sunday, in which 18 people have been killed so far.
Even after the police violence, people are not seen retreating. The protesters are demanding handover of power to the elected government of the country’s leader Aung San Suu Kyi. The United Nations Human Rights Office, in a statement referring to several cities in Myanmar, said, “Many people have died due to firing on the mob in Yangon, Dawei, Mandalay, Myk, Bago and Pokokku.” In a statement, office spokesman Raveena “We strongly condemn the escalating violence against the protesters in Myanmar and call upon the army to immediately stop using force against those who are demonstrating peacefully,” Shamdasani was quoted as saying.
