Online Desk : The United Nations human rights investigator for Myanmar said on Friday there were “growing reports, photographic evidence” that security forces have used live ammunition against protesters, in violation of international law, reports Reuters.
Thomas Andrews said that the UN Security Council should consider imposing sanctions, arms embargoes, and travel bans due to the military coup on Feb. 1 and reiterated his request to carry out a mission to the country.

Myint Thu, Myanmar’s ambassador to the UN in Geneva, said that it would maintain cooperation with the UN and Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), adding: “We do not want to stall the nascent democratic transition in the country.”
