Despite a UN plea for restraint by security forces in Myanmar following lethal crackdowns on anti-coup protests, the military regime continued to murder its own people on Friday morning, shooting and killing a male bystander on the streets of Mandalay.
During a mass protest involving tens of thousands of people, police and soldiers shot 27-year-old furniture maker Zaw Myo in the neck at the intersection of 114th and 49th streets.
Eyewitnesses said that before Zaw Myo was shot, he had been waving a flag in an effort to signal the movements of security forces to warn the protesters.
