A protester in Yangon, Myanmar, was seen being beaten by an armed police officer wielding a baton.
CCTV recorded the police and soldiers running towards the demonstrators in Sanchaung Township, Yangon, on Tuesday (March 2).
One of the group was seen being pinned to the ground by an officer and struck over the head three times with a baton before grabbed by the neck, pushed against a car and repeatedly punched. Several other officers then intervened.
Earlier in the day, villagers in northern Myanmar clashed with police in the town of Kale in the Sagaing Region. The police were forced back as the angry locals hurled objects at them.
