Five locals from Long Pyae Village in Sagaing Region’s Minkin Township were shot dead by junta troops by the outskirts of the village on October 13 at around 10 am. Locals from that village ran to the outskirts out of fear when the terrorist troops raided Long Pyae Village on the morning of October 13. It was when junta troops left the village, they shot at the five villagers. These five were named Min Thant, Po, Thar Swe, Swe Hlaing Oo, and Chat Pyar who suffered from mental illness. In addition to this, Than Naing, living in Kin Mon Taw Village in Sagaing Region’s Chaung-u Township, was shot dead by the Pyu Saw Htee on October 12, whilst Than Naing was on his way to pick up a logger who would cut a tree at his home.
