Around midnight on September 20, terrorist junta soldiers raided Shaw Phyu (Middle) Village in Nahtogyi Township in Mandalay Region, by continuously opening fire. The home of NLD supporters was shot at during the raid, and five family members, including a one and half year old child, were shot. Four of five were shot dead on the spot.
