Myanmar Coup: Airstrikes Send Protesters Fleeing To Thailand

Videos Team Latestly|

Thailand’s prime minister denied on March 30 that his country’s security forces forced villagers back to Myanmar who had fled from military airstrikes. He said they returned home on their own accord. Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha, nevertheless, said his country is ready to shelter anyone who is escaping fighting, as it has done many times in recent decades. His comments came a day after humanitarian groups said Thailand has been sending back some of the thousands of people who have fled a series of Myanmar military airstrikes. The weekend strikes, which sent ethnic Karen people to seek safety in Thailand, were another escalation in the violent crackdown by Myanmar’s junta on protests against its February 1 takeover. At least 510 protesters have been killed since the coup, according to Myanmar’s Assistance Association for Political Prisoners, which says the actual toll is likely much higher.
