ITV News published this video item, entitled “Myanmar security forces ‘kill at least 33 protesters’ | ITV News” – below is their description.
Security forces in Myanmar dramatically escalated their crackdown on demonstrations against last month’s coup, killing at least 33 protesters in several cities on Wednesday, according to accounts on social media and local news reports.
This is the highest daily death toll since the February 1 takeover, exceeding the 18 that the UN Human Rights Office said were killed on Sunday, and could galvanise the international community, which has responded fitfully thus far to the violence.
Videos from Wednesday also showed security forces firing catapults at demonstrators, chasing them down and in one instance beating an ambulance crew.
There are fears the death toll could be even higher, with the Democratic Voice of Burma, an independent television and online news service, tallying 38 deaths.ITV News YouTube Channel
