At least one kil-led as protestors shot with live rounds at Myanmar anti-coup protest

A doctor on the scene confirmed that some protesters had been injured by live rounds.

“We do not have enough medicine for them to be treated here,” he said, explaining the transfer.

Around the protest site, empty bul-let cartridges were found, as well as slingshot ammunition including metal balls.

One woman received a head wound from a rubber bul-let and emergency workers quickly administered first aid to her.

A Facebook video streamed live by a resident on the scene appeared to carry non-stop sounds of gunshots.

“They are sho-oting cruelly,” said the resident, who appeared to be taking shelter on a nearby construction site.

“We have to find a safer place.”

Since the nationwide protests started two weeks ago, authorities in some cities have deployed tear gas, water cannon and rubber bullets against demonstrators.

There have been isolated incidents of live rounds being fired.

An anti-coup protester who was shot in the head during a February 9 demonstration in Naypyidaw died on Friday. Her doctors had confirmed to AFP that her injury was from a live bul-let.
