U Khin Maung Latt, an National League for Democracy official, died in custody after arrest by Myanmar security forces in Yangon. His family was reportedly told he had died "after fainting." Photos show a bloodstained cloth around the 58-year-old's head.
Is this what the Myanmar junta stands for? On Saturday evening, security forces seized National League for Democracy official Khin Maung Latt at his home, and beat and kicked him at gun point. The next day his family recovered his body with severe wounds.
The #Myanmar junta’s crackdown needs to be met with a serious and united international response, incl targeted sanctions against military leaders and their companies, to demonstrate global outrage for the killing of Khin Maung Latt and other atrocities.
