“The police are more and more aggressive”


The United Nations condemns the crackdown on pro-democracy protesters in Burma, more than one month after the government was overthrown by the military junta. Sunday alone left at least eight dead, but we could count a dozen more victims.

Burma is sinking into violence. The United Nations on Sunday condemned the murderous crackdown on protesters in the country, nearly a month after the government was overthrown by the military junta. There are at least eight dead during these pro-democracy protests, but the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights speaks of 18 protesters killed.

Live ammunition

The soldiers are no longer limited to tear gas, water cannons and rubber bullets, lethal weapons are now out with live ammunition, responsible for the death of several demonstrators, in at least three cities of the country, including Rangoon and its suburbs. “I was there when there were the police. They were really aggressive this morning. They are more and more,” said a protester at the microphone of Europe 1.

Sunday remains the deadliest day since the military took power earlier this month. The injured number in the tens, and the arrests in the hundreds: more than 500 since Saturday, including journalists and photographers. A crackdown condemned by the international community, which demands the release of Aung San Suu Kyi. The head of the Burmese government has not been seen in public since her arrest three weeks ago.
