In Myanmar, nine protesters who were protesting against the coup were also known to have died due to indiscriminate shooting by the military and police.
The situation is worsening again amid ASEAN’s efforts to resolve the Myanmar crisis.

It’s only been three days since 18 protesters were killed in the fire by the military and police last Sunday, and another massive bloodshed, right?
“Four people were shot and killed in central Sagaing City,” the AFP news agency quoted local medical staff.
In addition, the local media, Myanmar Now, reported that one man and two people, one man and one man, were killed by a military police shooting in Mandalay, the second city of Myanmar.
Myanmar Now added that a woman in her 30s was shot in the chest and a man in her teens was shot in the head.
The Reuters news agency also cited eyewitnesses, reporting that a military police shot in Yangon, Myanmar’s largest city, killed one and wounded several others.
In addition, it was reported that one death occurred in Mingzan and several others were injured.
Local media say that taking the situation together so far, it is estimated that at least nine people have died in today’s protests.
On the 28th of last month, another massive bloodshed occurred three days after the so-called’Blood Sunday’, where at least 18 people were killed by police indiscriminately firing across Myanmar.
As the meeting between ASEAN and Myanmar military representatives held yesterday’s video ended without success, the military and police suppression of violence is intensifying.
At yesterday’s meeting, ASEAN made a statement in its chairman’s statement, saying, “I urge all parties to refrain from promoting further violence and to resolve the situation peacefully through dialogue.”
Meanwhile, state advisor Aung San Suu Kyi, who was taken over by the military coup, is taking action against the military regime by appointing a cabinet member after a special envoy.
So far, the International Department has delivered it.
