Protesters in Myanmar mocks junta leader on his birthday

Myanmar protesters have burned mock coffins and pictures of the junta leader Min Aung Hlaing today in the latest demonstrations against the junta’s seizing power in February which led the Southeast Asian country into disorder.

Messages on funeral wreaths such as “May you not rest in peace” and “may your birthday and death day be the same,” were spotted in Theinzayet township in eastern Mon state. Protests like this also took place in many parts of the coup-hit country.

A protester located in the second city of Mandalay said that they are burning these images as a curse to the military leader while putting on fire a small pile of pictures of the general.
