International leaders have condemned the weekend’s violence.
EU External Relations chief Josep Borrell called for an end to the tragedy in Myanmar.
The Myanmar army celebrated its annual holiday on Saturday, but instead of celebrating, the army made Saturday a “day of horror and shame,” according to Borrell.
U.S. President Joe Biden, for his part, called the violence against protesters shocking.
- It is completely shocking, and according to the information I have received, really many people have been killed completely unnecessarily.
