Myanmar Junta Uses Explosives, Killing At Least Two Dozen Protesters

At least 11 civilians were killed and nearly 30 injured during clashes with regime forces near Taze Township in Sagaing Region on Wednesday evening. By Thursday morning, around 612 civilians have been killed by the military junta since the February coup. Using homemade firearms and air guns, residents attempted to prevent seven trucks full of troops from entering the town at around 4pm on Wednesday. Residents claimed the troops were being deployed to crack down on daily anti-regime protests in Taze, which have attracted tens of thousands of people but had not been attacked by the junta’s forces until yesterday.
