Movie director, Wine, who was filed under Section 505(a) of the Penal Code, and was evading arrest, was arrested half an hour after he arrived at his apartment in Pazundaung Township, in Yangon Region, this past morning.

On the morning of January 30, Junta soldiers raided Thit Seint Gyi Village in Sagaing Region’s Wetlet Township by boat, by deploying artillery shells, and arrested six civilians named Thura Tun, Ko Ko Linn Maung, Min Min Tun, Myint Aung, Thel Tun Aung and Zaw Min Tun. They were killed after being used as human shields. Their burned bodies were found on February 4 in the field near the village, with their hands tied to the back, while villagers were searching for them, after the Junta soldiers left on February 3.
