  • Police and soldiers reportedly killed dozens of people, including children, across Myanmar on Saturday, as the military celebrated the 76th annual Armed Forces Day in the capital with a parade. 
  • The online news site Myanmar Now reported late Saturday that the death toll had reached 114, according to The Associated Press. A count issued by an independent researcher in Yangon who has been compiling near-real time death tolls put the total at 107.  
  • Thousands of people on Saturday were protesting the military’s takeover. Students, monks, nuns, health care workers and educators have all taken part in demonstrations to demand a return to the path toward democracy since the military junta seized control in early February.
