Protesters Flee as Bangs Heard in Yangon

Burmese police fired shots to disperse protesters in Myanmar’s two biggest cities on February 26, according to live footage streamed, and a Reuters report, citing witnesses on the ground.

Footage shared from Yangon shows protesters fleeing as the sound of shots rings out.

It was not immediately clear if the shots heard were live fire. At least one person was injured in the protests. Credit: Thi Rein Dra Zaw via Storyful
