 In the evening of December 6,  a 5-year-old child called Ei Thandar Aung was shot in the back of her head and died on the spot while playing in front of her house. The armed wing of the Junta had aimlessly fired into Aung Tharyar Ward in Mandalay Region’s Chan Mya Tharsi Township after a bomb attack on the Aung Tharyar ward administration office in which Junta soldiers were guarding.

In the morning of December 8 in Mandalay City, a youth named Khaing Zin Phue a.k.a A Phue was arrested with a gunshot injury to her leg.
