Protesters Return to Streets in Myanmar’s Mandalay Day After Police Kill 2

On Sunday, Yangon demonstrators held a new rally against the military coup in Myanmar, demanding the release of deposed State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi from detention.

Protesters had painted a huge 'we need justice' sign on the road close to the rally site.

On Saturday, two people were killed during a protest in Myanmar’s second city Mandalay when security forces fired on demonstrators, local media reported, citing local emergency workers.

The deaths occurred after a young woman died on Friday after being shot in the head last week as police dispersed a crowd in the capital, Naypyidaw.

She became the first confirmed victim among thousands of protesters who have taken to the streets since the military took power.

Aung San Suu Kyi was arrested alongside other elected officials from the National League for Democracy (NLD) party after the February 1 coup.

The military said the move was in response to alleged fraud during the legislative elections in November 2020, which saw Aung San Suu Kyi's NLD win a majority of the seats in parliament.Follow the Official Rokna NEWS Telegram Channel For More and fresh NEWS.
