With 114 deaths in protests on Saturday, military violence reached its preliminary climax. The UN special envoy for human rights in Myanmar accused the generals of “mass murder” of their own people. The protests continued yesterday. According to the media, police officers and soldiers are said to have shot mourners at a funeral.

The UN called Saturday the “bloodiest day” since the February 1st coup. UN Special Envoy on Human Rights to Myanmar Tom Andrews said it was time for the world to step in – if not through the Security Council, then through an international summit on Myanmar, Andrews said.
