In Myanmar, there was a fierce clash between security forces and protesters on the occasion of Armed Forces Day on Saturday. The Myanmar army crossed all limits on the occasion and played a blood Holi with protesters demanding democracy. Gunshots were fired at protesters in many places across the country. According to reports, 114 protesters, including children, have been killed by security forces’ bullets. The protesters have warned that they will publicly oppose the coup and organize large demonstrations.
In 44 towns and cities of the country, the army on Saturday massacred fiercely. Officials of the United States, Britain, European Union and United Nations have condemned the violence. The UN investigator said that the army is committing mass murder. In Myanmar in February this year, the army overthrew the country and took over the power of the country. Since then, more than 400 people have been killed in anti-army demonstrations.
Those killed on Saturday include a 13-year-old girl, who was shot dead by soldiers after entering her house. According to the Myanmar Now report, so far about 20 minor children have also been killed in this violence. Soldiers and policemen are shooting people to suppress the protests against the coup last month in the country.
An independent researcher collecting data on the current death toll in Yangon had reported 93 people who died by Saturday evening, which has now risen to 114. During the parade on the occasion of Military Day in the capital city of Napita, military ruler Senior General Min Aung Laing said that the army would protect the people while the protesters were being showered in Myanmar on Saturday.
Min Aung promised that elections would be held in the country, but military chief Min Aung Laing did not say anything about when the elections would be held. He said that the army had to come to power, because democratically elected leader Aung Sang Suu Kyi and his party had committed illegal acts. According to the BBC, the army chief did not say whether the army had been ordered to fire at the protesters.
