Riotous protesters attack security forces.

About 150 angry protestors made roadblocks and set tires on fire on public roads on 105th street between 52nd and 53rd streets in Chanmyathazi Township of Mandalay Region yesterday evening, and the security forces removed these roadblocks due to the report.
When the security removed and dispersed the crowd in accordance with the law, the angry rioters attacked the security forces with handmade guns, sticks, knives and jingalis. Some of the members, including one official of security forces, were injured.
During that moment, there were more than 100 Tatmadaw men and about 100 police holding riot control weapons. Therefore, such a situation can cause enormous causalities as their officer was injured.
Similarly, two police died in Dabayin, one security force member was killed in Hninsi Housing of Aungmyethazan of Mandalay, and four police members in Thanlyin Township faced tortured, and two police sergeants of Pyin Oo Lwin, one police of Mawlamyine and another five police members of Chanmyathazi also faced brutalities.
Then, one acting head of Kyauktada Township police station was also killed, one police second lieutenant died and three injured due to the shots by protestors in Bago, four military members, including officers, were killed in Pekon, Ma Win Thandar Swe, wife of the military officer in Hlinethaya Township, was also killed. So these cases can irk the security forces. If they use their weapons carelessly due to anger, those who committed such crimes might face causalities.
But, the security forces maintained the situation as per the directives of the State Administration Council, 1956 crowd and riot manual, 2015 crowd control manual of Myanmar Police Force.
Therefore, the security forces detained 45 men participating in the riot on 105th street between 52nd and 53rd streets in Chanmyathazi Township without any injuries to conduct further investigations, it is learnt. —MNA
