Myanmar: Thousands rally after overnight raids | News | DW | 07.03.2021

Thousands of Myanmar anti-coup demonstrators defied a military crackdown on Sunday, following overnight raids in Yangon which saw soldiers detain an official from Aung San Suu Kyi’s party along with several others.

Meanwhile, police in Myanmar’s ancient former capital, Bagan, opened fire on demonstrators, wounding several people. At least five people were reported injured as police sought to break up the Bagan protest, while photos showed one person with bloody wounds on his chin and neck, believed to have been caused by a rubber bullet. 

Bullet casings collected at the scene indicated that live rounds were also fired.
