Multiple protesters have been injured after a military truck rammed into a crowd in Myanmar’s commercial capital of Yangon

According to reports by local media, the military vehicle drove into demonstrators in Myanmar with soldiers then opening fire on some of those fleeing protesters, and beat others.

Since the nations coup in February, more than 1,200 people have been killed during ongoing demonstrations with thousands more imprisoned.

The military said it arrested 11 people at this latest protest. Three were injured – one is in critical condition.

Citizens took to social media posting images of the incident, with tweets labelling the junta as terrorists.

The military did not confirm whether a truck had driven into the group, however did state that it had dispersed a “rioting” crowd

Local news agency MPA stated that it believed two of its reporters were among the detainees. One of them appeared to be injured, and they had lost contact with the other, the agency said.

The anti-junta protest was one of at least three held in Yangon on Sunday. Since military forces have often opened fire on protesters in the past, demonstrations are often held in small organised groups to minimise casualties.
