MYANMAR — On behalf of the country’s civilian elected government, Ambassador Kyaw Moe Tun, appealed to the United Nations “to use any means necessary to take action against the Myanmar military” and restore democracy to the Southeast Asian country. A day later the Myanmar Police would open fire on demonstrators in several different cities killing at least 18 and signaling a new toughness in response to the people’s demand for the restoration of democracy and an end to the military coup lead by General Min Aung Hlaing of the Myanmar military.
