[Myanmar] Man shot dead near Mya Ye Nanda Housing in Mandalay


A man was shot dead near Mya Ye Nanda Housing in Mandalay at about 12pm today.

Security forces including police opened fire to disperse the protest column of engineers gathered near the housing in Chanmyathazi Township and they fired again on 49th and 114th Streets. And the man was shot dead.  

“He was not a protester. He didn’t confront them either. This happened only after the dispersal due to gunfire. He helped clean the road. Despite no one on the road, he was shot in the neck and died,” a local witness said.

His name was Zaw Myo, aged 27, running a furniture-making business.
