At least 54 people are known to have been killed so far as the bloody suppression of the Myanmar military regime intensified.

Despite threats to the protesters with jets and machine guns, the citizens of Myanmar have not yielded to this and have come to the streets to resist military coups.

Reporter Park Soo-jin reports.


Fellow protesters move a citizen who was shot in the head and fell down at the scene of a protest.

The soldiers brutally quelled the citizens who were engaged in peaceful demonstrations by shooting live ammunition.

Machine guns were even mobilized against unarmed citizens in some areas.

The UN says at least 54 people have been officially confirmed to have died from indiscriminate bloody suppression by the military government.

[Ravina Shamdasani/UN Human Rights Office Spokesman: The actual death toll will be far more than 54.

Myanmar's military should stop killing and detaining.]

More than 1,700 people were detained, including 29 domestic and foreign reporters covering the protests.

The European Union has said it will stop supporting all development cooperation in Myanmar, and the opinion that the United Nations should also impose bans on arms exports and economic sanctions is gaining momentum.

As the situation gets worse, there is a procession of foreigners trying to leave Myanmar.

Yesterday (4th), more than 390 Vietnamese people returned to Vietnam using two airliners, and the Singaporean government advised their citizens to leave Myanmar as soon as possible.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is also conducting consultations with related organizations and surveying the needs of Korean residents in order to launch special aircraft for Korean residents who wish to return to their home countries.
