Myanmar: Protesters defy rising death toll | News | DW | 20.03.2021

Protesters came out onto the streets across Myanmar on Saturday as they maintained their defiance of the military junta and its violent crackdown. At least one person was killed overnight in the northern ruby-mining town of Mogok when security forces opened fire. “One [person] died on the spot last night while two others are in critical condition in the hospital,” a rescue worker told AFP news agency. Photos shared on Twitter showed students and residents gathering on Saturday morning in the town of Bago, northeast of Yangon.
