The highest death toll was in Myaing in Magway region, where until Thursday police had refrained from shooting protesters
At least 12 died across the country on Thursday as the coup regime unleashed more savage attacks on protesters, part of a campaign to terrorize the population into submission in response to a massive popular uprising that threatens to remove the military from power.
The majority of the confirmed deaths were in Myaing, Magway region, where police used guns to murder at least seven protesters and injure 10 others.
Police started by arresting three people after a crowd gathered in downtown Myaing early in the morning. When protesters began calling for their release, police fired tear gas grenades and shot three people dead.
“Then an hour later they shot again. Seven were killed in total,” a Myaing resident told Myanmar Now on Thursday afternoon.
“One of the protesters was shot near the groin. Another was shot in the head. The right side of his head was blown apart from the impact of the bullet,” said a protester who witnessed the shootings
