On October 30, a junta column of around 100 troops, launched an offensive into Ywar Thar Ywar Village, Indaw Township, Sagaing Region. They then beat and killed 17-year-old Aung Myo Min, accusing him of being a graduate trainee of the People’s Defense Force. The forces had left his body on the side of a road. He was arrested because he ran into the junta column in the village, after which they discovered pictures of him graduating from the PDF training on his phone.
