Myanmar suffers more bloodshed in wake of February coup – New York Post

A young man was shot and killed in Yangon, Myanmar, during a protest against the February 1 coup that toppled the elected government led by Aung San Suu Kyi, according to reports.

The death count rose to 238, the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners activist group reported.

The violence comes amid widespread domestic outrage and international condemnation after the nation’s government was overthrown in a coup led by Senior General Min Aunt Hlaing, commander in chief of the Myanmar defense forces.

Suu Kyi, a 1991 Nobel Peace Prize laureate who was elected to office in 2011, remains detained by the junta.

The State Department has offered temporary protected status to the approximately 1,600 people of Myanmar residing in the United States.
