(Faithwire) The growing death toll since the military takeover in Burma has risen to more than 8, with some 4,500 injured as confirmed by the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners monitoring group.
The Burma military and police forces have opened fire on protesters armed with mere sticks and slingshots, often killing innocent civilians including children. In a surveillance video that went viral, soldiers are seen shooting randomly at three young men, killing one of them.
In the midst of all this military crackdown, the ousted civilian government formed the National Unity Government. Most of its members are under arrest or in hiding.
