U Myo Myo Kyaw, who was elected in 2020, was detained by the junta last month and died after enduring torture at the Northern Command HQ, relatives and colleagues said.
The horrific massacre of nine children and six adults at a school in Sagaing Region shows that the junta’s terror campaign will spare no one.
After the attack in Sagaing’s Depayin Township, junta forces removed and cremated the bodies and took the injured away to another township, locals said.
Local PDFs said the military called in air strikes and torched villages during two weeks of clashes; the regime also suffered at least 40 casualties, the groups said.
Two or three regime soldiers are being killed every day by mines and ambushes in the township, Chin resistance groups said.
The deaths and several injuries occurred when regime artillery shells hit a village in Rakhine State’s Mrauk-U Township after AA fighters ambushed junta troops.
Unconfirmed reports have emerged that the four detainees, members of the Burmese Ranger Army-Local Defense Force, later died during interrogation.
They were among at least 80 regime forces killed in Chin, Kachin and Karen states and Sagaing and Magwe regions, resistance groups said.
Rohingya sources said the insurgent group ARSA was behind the shootings of Syed Hossain and Abu Taleb.
The Russian-made Mi-35 helicopter attacked women transplanting paddy in Depayin, Sagaing Region for no reason; thousands of villagers fled their homes after the attack.
The charred remains of the three, including an ex-commander of CDF-Zotung, were found in Matupi. They had gone to check on a group of villagers detained by junta forces.
The three, including a local resistance group leader, were among 10 fighters detained by regime forces in Aungmyaythazan on Monday.
A bombing at a police post in Muse, which is home to military-backed militias, was followed by two shooting incidents; no one has claimed responsibility for the attacks.
More than 250 civilians have been killed and over 150,000 left homeless as the junta conducts air strikes and torches property amid the clashes, a rights group said.
Dozens of regime soldiers have been killed during four days of fighting between the military and the Northern Thandaung Defense Force in Karen State.
