Now, a police raid in Myanmar’s second-largest city did take a violent turn on Saturday. Especially, when authorities did fire live rounds. In particular, on the protestors who did gather to stop arrests.

In Yangon, a young anti-coup leader dies. Then, protestors in huge numbers did come out. Mainly, to raise their voice against the brutal shooting of the young leader.

Mya Thwaite Khaing, a popular grocery worker from the isolated part of Yangon in Myanmar did get killed. In fact, her death did attract a mass and fresh protest. In just less than two weeks, where Burmese citizens are out in solidarity. After the gunshot did turn into a national resistance mechanism.

Moreover, the protestors did carry a 15-meter long banner with the artwork. Precisely, the artwork did show how the young girl did take a bullet on one of the bridges. Mainly, grief did take over in the city. After the bullet did pierce her head in the heated confrontation with police officers.

The events did unfold when the young leader did join the Naypyidaw rally. Mainly, join in the crowd to demand the release of the altered civil and veteran leaders’ daughter, Aung San Suu Kyi. Though, the police did disperse the rioters earlier with rubber bullets. Unfortunately, Mya Thwaite did take a live bullet when the authorities started firing live bullets.

Her family did cry for help on her 20th birthday. Only two days later after the awful incident, she did lie helplessly in the Intensive Care Unit on her birthday. Later, the doctors did confirm her death before midday on Friday. On Sunday, the family did organise her burial.

Meanwhile, International Organisations like Amnesty International did criticise the force and the crude means. The ones that the authorities did apply via the deployed officers. Also, it said the police are recklessly targeting protestors.

Further, Amnesty did verify the footage that did circulate online for the better part of Friday. Mainly, it shows a long-haired lady falling on the ground. While witnesses did scramble to give her a helping hand. Later, her name did become a household feature on Myanmar land.

In fact, her death is reported to be the first. Precisely, under the military regime. Since the time they did take charge at the beginning of February this year.
