Many death and several others injured in Burma
At least 40 people have been killed in the recent crackdown on demonstrators against the January coup in Burma. The military hierarchy has said there must be a martial curfew in regions like Yangon where various Chinese firms have been razed.
A security official was also killed last night after several Scuffles with protesters continued. The military Junta has continued to say it will leave power after a free and fair election must have been concluded this year. However, critics doubt they will do so since there are no guidelines.
About a total of 125 people have died in violent crackdowns since the protest started according to the Assistance Association of political prisoners. The association has also warned that these figures are increasing daily except measures were put in place to stop it.
