Myanmar: Behold BBC investigation of military’s mass killings

Myanmar’s military carried out a number of mass killings of civilians  in July that resulted in the deaths of at least 40 men, as stated by BBC investigation.

Observer and survivors said that soldiers, some as young as 17, rounded up villagers before separating and killing  men.

The military has faced opposition from civilians since it seized control of the country in a February coup, overthrowing a democratically-elected government led by Aung San Suu Kyi.
