A few more details today: The more than two weeks of protests have been largely peaceful, but tensions escalated on Saturday when soldiers and police fired live rounds at striking workers at Mandalay’s Yadanabon dock. One victim was shot in the head and died immediately, according to the Frontier Myanmar magazine, while another was shot in the chest and died en route to the hospital. An emergency worker told the AFP news agency 30 others had been wounded, with half of the injuries caused by live rounds. Thomas Andrews, the UN special rapporteur for Myanmar, said he had received reports that the Tatmadaw’s 33rd Light Infantry Division was involved in the shootings. That unit was responsible for the campaign of mass killings, rape, and arson that forced 730,000 members of the Rohingya ethnic minority into Bangladesh in 2017. Andrews called the shootings “a dangerous escalation by the junta in what appears to be a war against the people of Myanmar”. But it has not put off the protestors Tens of thousands of anti-coup protesters have returned to the streets of cities and towns across Myanmar, undeterred by the killing of at least two people during a military crackdown on a demonstration in the country’s second-largest city of Mandalay. In Yangon, Myanmar’s largest city, several thousand young people gathered at two sites to chant slogans, while thousands massed peacefully in Mandalay. “They aimed at the heads of unarmed civilians. They aimed at our future,” a young protester told the crowd in the central city.
