Myanmar's army has fired on protesters. At least seven people were killed. Many injured. The incident took place on Wednesday, April 07.

The news agency Reuters reported this information.

Despite bloody repression, Myanmar's pro-democracy forces have continued to protest against the military rule. The country's junta has shut down the internet as well as using force as a way to quell protests.

An army coup took place in Myanmar on February 1. More than 580 people have been killed so far in anti-coup protests in the country. Among the dead were children. About three and a half thousand people have been arrested. The rights group reported the information to the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners (AAP).

Myanmar's security forces opened fire on protesters in the northwestern city of Kale today. Five people were reported killed there.

A Kale town resident said protesters were demanding the restoration of Aung San Suu Kyi's civilian government.

Citing eyewitnesses, various local media outlets reported that gunshots were heard repeatedly in the town. These shots caused casualties.

The bomber struck shortly after noon in the town of Bago, near Yangon. Two protesters were killed.

Protesters set fire to a Chinese-owned factory in the commercial capital, Yangon. They also burned the Chinese flag.

No casualties were reported in the blaze at the garment factory. Apart from this, the details of the damage were not known.

China is backing Myanmar's military junta. That is why the Myanmar protesters are angry with China. Last month, protesters set fire to 32 factories with Chinese investment in Yangon.
