MYANMAR TROOPS KILL FIVE PROTESTERS IN FRESH USE OF DEADLY FORCE ON ANTI-COUP DEMONSTRATORS AND JUNTA-IMPOSED INTERNET BLOCKADE.

Myanmar troops have fired at anti-coup protesters, killing at least five people and wounding several.
Media said activists defied a bloody crackdown and internet blockade by the ruling junta.
More than 580 people have been killed, according to an activist group, in the turmoil in Myanmar since a February 1 coup that ended a brief period of civilian-led democracy.
Nationwide protests and strikes have persisted since then despite the ruling military’s use of lethal force to quell the opposition.
