International community denounces crackdown on demonstrators in Myanmar 

Asahi wrote today that following the killing on Saturday of two Myanmar (Burma) citizens by the military during a protest rally against the coup, Japan, the U.S., and many other nations issued statements strongly condemning the junta and urging it to stop using violence against civilians immediately. Yomiuri and Nikkei filed similar articles.    

 

In a related development, NHK reported last night that some 3,500 Myanmar citizens staged a rally near the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo on Sunday to call for the international community to step up pressure on the junta. Footage showed them assembling across the street from the chancery and pleading for international support for their cause.
