Myanmar Coup: Thousands March In Protest After Funeral Of Two Killed In Deadly Shootings

Yangon: Massive protests erupted on Sunday as protesters gathered again this morning all over Myanmar, a day after security forces shot dead two people in the country’s second-biggest city Yangon.

A funeral was also held for a young woman killed earlier by police. Earlier today, the Myanmar police arrested famous Burmese actor Lu Min, who was ‘wanted’ under anti-incitement law for supporting the opposition and encouraging civil servants to join the protest.

A live broadcast on Facebook showed the wife of actor Lu Min describing to neighbours how her husband was arrested and taken away from their home shortly after midnight. He was one of six high-profile people in the entertainment industry charged last week with inciting civil servants to stop work and join the protest movement.

Hundreds of thousands took the streets to protest against the February 1 military coup that toppled the elected government of Aung San Suu Kyi, while Mya Thwet Thwet Khine was the first confirmed death.

The woman was shot on February 9, just two days before her 20th birthday, at a protest in the capital Naypyidaw, and died Friday.
