Opposition Retailating For Myanmar Military Killings

As attacks on regime officials continue across the country, four people have been killed in three separate incidents in Mandalay Region’s Myingyan District, including three village administrators.

A village administrator and his secretary were killed in Kyaungpyu Kan on Monday amid accusations that they had called in regime soldiers to quell anti-coup activities.

According to a resident who spoke to Myanmar Now on condition of anonymity, Junta troops stormed the village twice after Myint Aung threatened opponents.

He even fed the soldiers at his home, said the villager, noting that Myint Aung was appointed to his position after the coup.

Many Kyaungpyu Kan residents, including striking teachers and other anti-coup dissidents, fled the village after the two men were killed.

Recently, the administrator of Myothar, a village in Ngazun Township in Myingyan District, was also killed.

According to a Myothar resident, Win Naing, who also served in the military as a second warrant officer, was stabbed to death at around 11:30am by two unidentified men in a beer shop near the local police station.

He was accused of taking photographs of anti-coup protesters and pointing out their houses to the regime’s authorities, resulting in several arrests.

Villagers say Win Naing had been the village administrator before the military coup and that he was killed despite tightened security in the village.

He said the place where the men stabbed him was only a few minutes away from where the junta’s authorities were interrogating people.

Win Naing’s house was struck by a bomb last week, but no casualties were reported, said the villager.

“His house was bombed. Several other houses were also damaged.He ignored the warnings of the people,” he said.

In Myingyan Township, another killing was reported in the village of Thapyaythar the day before.

Ten people wearing camouflage uniforms killed village administrator Win Shwe outside his house, according to a local resident who could not provide further details about the incident.

Before the coup, Win Shwe was already village administrator. He cooked and fed soldiers stationed in the village often, according to local sources.

There were fierce clashes last month between regime forces and locals armed with hunting rifles and homemade weapons in Myingyan.My

Recently, several attacks on local officials suspected of acting as regime informants have been reported around the country.

An official who also ran as a pro-military candidate in last year’s election was shot and killed in Yangon’s Hlaing Tharyar Township.

In addition to two other officials killed in Yangon last month, a local township chair of the military’s proxy party was also fatally shot in Mon State.
