On May 6, Junta soldiers opened fire near Pyin Chaung Village on two young men, who were going to Yangon from Kyunn Gyi Village, Pauk Township, Magway Region. One of them, 20-year-old Nyein Htet Aung was killed, the other one was arrested.

On May 4, Shaki, 4-and-a-half-year-old daughter of a CDM teacher, who led a peaceful protest of Kyaukse Education, was taken hostage because the junta was unable to locate her father.
