More than 100 killed as Myanmar junta unleashes worst day of terrorMarch 27, 2021
Children as young as five among those shot in democracy protests
Saturday was Armed Forces Day in Myanmar, and the ruling generals marked it with the slaughter of over 100 people, including a five-year-old and other children, at pro-democracy protests across the nation.
It was the worst bloodshed since a coup that began on 1 February. State media had issued a warning on Friday evening, saying that the largely peaceful protesters risked being shot “in the head and back”.
