At least five people have been killed and 20 injured in Mandalay today, social welfare groups told Frontier, after police violently dispersed peaceful protesters.
Three men and two women were killed when police fired live rounds at protesters on several occasions in Maha Aung Myay Township, between the city’s commercial district and the Ayeyarwady River.
Three people were killed and at least 10 injured in the morning when police used live rounds to disperse a sit-in against military rule staged by teachers, healthcare workers, students, monks and residents at the corner of 13th and 91st streets.
Images seen by Frontier show that one woman who died had been struck by a bullet to the forehead.
The protests continued through the afternoon, and security forces killed two more demonstrators.
