Myanmar protesters continue their plans to take to the streets on Sunday, after local media reported police used tear gas and stun grenades to disperse crowds in Yangon on Saturday. There are currently no reports of casualties.
Early Sunday morning, residents of some areas in Yangon said soldiers and police had carried out some night patrols and opened fire. At least 3 people in Kyauktada have been arrested.
“They are asking to take my father and brother away. Doesn’t anyone help us? Don’t touch my dad. If you want to take them away, you have to take us as well ”, shouted a woman as two relatives were escorted.
The soldiers also tracked down a lawyer who worked for Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy.
More than 1,700 people have been detained in Myanmar since the coup, according to data from the Association to Support Political Prisoners.
The United Nations says more than 50 people have been killed in police protesters convictions since Myanmar’s military regained power and detained civilian government leaders, including the State Counselor. Aung San Suu Kyi.
