The violence escalated a day after the death of a 20-year-old protester, Mia Tuate Tuate Keng , who was wounded by bullets on February 9.
The military junta does not stop intensifying pressure on the pro-democracy movement.
Despite this, thousands of protesters flooded the streets of Yangon, the country's financial capital, again today. They demand the return of the political government, the release of the prisoners and the abolition of the Constitution, which is particularly favorable for the military.
Nearly three weeks after the coup overthrew Aung San Suu Kyi's government and ended a fragile 10-year democratic transition , protests from the international community and the announcement of new sanctions do not deter the generals.
Arrests continue with nearly 550 people arrested in 3 weeks (political officials, striking civil servants, activists…), according to a non-governmental organization. Only 40 of them have been released .
