At least 60 killed during Myanmar protests in day of horrifying violence

At least 64 individuals have been killed during protests in Myanmar Saturday as individuals took to the streets to protest the nation’s ruling army junta.

The carnage got here during a army parade in the nation’s capital of Naypyitaw during which the nation’s prime leaders vowed to guard democracy.

“They’re killing us like birds or chickens, even in our houses,” Thu Ya Zaw, a resident of central Myanmar instructed Reuters. “We are going to hold protesting regardless. … We should battle till the junta falls.”

The unrest has continued virtually every day since a Feb. 1 army coup that overthrew the nation’s democratically elected chief Aung San Suu Kyi.

Suu Kyi has been indefinitely detained by the junta and her present whereabouts stay unknown.
