What started out as another morning of protest for citizens of Yangon against the brutal crackdown by the military, turned deadly Sunday morning, when Myanmar security forces in a car rammed into the anti-coup protest, killing five people, and leaving dozens other injured.
Photos and videos circulating on social media show a vehicle crashing through the protesters, with witnesses saying the car increased speed as it got closer to the protesters.
Witnesses say that a handful of people, some who were carrying banners in support of ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi were hit, as soldiers then jumped out of the car and began shooting, as protesters began fleeing.
Sunday's protest was one of at least three being held in Yangon, Myanmar's biggest city, as the rallies were held a day ahead of an expected verdict in the first of several criminal cases against the country's civilian leader.
More than ten months since the coup, the military has reportedly killed more than 13-hundred people.
