Myanmar: People Who Took To Streets Even After Army Threat, Three Protesters Killed
Despite the army’s threat, thousands of protestors gathered in Myanmar’s largest city. People protested against the military coup outside the US embassy in Yangon. A large number of policemen and about 20 military trucks have been deployed around the embassy. Late Sunday night, the army also made an official announcement to take action against the protestors. Three persons have been killed in the demonstration so far.
Myanmar’s army had detained several prominent leaders, including the country’s supreme leader Aung San Suu Kyi, in a coupon February one. Despite sanctions in several cities against the coup, demonstrations are taking off. Despite the closure of several roads, thousands of protestors gathered near the US embassy in Yangon.
The civil Disobede movement, which led the demonstrations, called upon the people to perform on Monday. The State Administration Council has said that the protestors are now instigating the people. This path of confrontation can threaten life. The army, accusing the involvement of a criminal gang in the protestors, said the security forces have to retaliate.
