The Myanmar Military extended the Martial Law imposing it across more districts around the country following the deadliest day of protests since February’s Coup.
The report mentioned the death of about 50 people on Sunday when the troops and police opened fire on the protesters in various areas. According to the report, most of the deaths were in Yangon.
The protests are going on in Myanmar since February against the Coup and demanding the release of civilian leader Aung San Sui Kyi.
Aung is the head of the National League for Democracy (NLD), the party that won the election last November. But the Military took over the charge alleging some fraudulent practices in elections without any proof.
Aung has been detained at an unknown location since February 1 and she was to be presented before Court on Monday through virtual hearings for the allegations made against her by the military. But the virtual hearing was adjourned due to internet problems.
