As the military crackdown on anti-coup protesters in Myanmar continues, 818 people have been killed in the country so far, said Assistance Association of Political Prisoners (AAPP).

According to AAPP, two youths were shot dead by Myanmar Army in Kayah State while bringing food for people who fled from the town.

The bodies of the two were reportedly taken away by the military regime.

Besides, a total of 4,296 people are currently under detention, out of whom 95 have been sentenced and 1,822 have been issued arrest warrants.

Earlier, over 13 members of the security forces were killed in a clash between fighters, who are opposed to Myanmar’s military junta, and the country’s troops in the country’s east.

The fighters of the People’s Defence Force battled early Sunday with security forces in Muse which is one of the main crossings to China, Asia Nikkei reported citing Myanmar media.

Early this month, Myanmar’s National Unity Government (NUG), set up by opponents of army rule, formed a “people’s defence force” to protect its supporters from military attacks and violence instigated by the military government.
