After Deadly Clashes, Myanmar Junta Frees Detained Anti-Regime Protesters


28 April 2021
The arrest of the seven sparked clashes between regime troops and resistance fighters in Chin State’s Mindat, where at least 20 Tatmadaw soldiers have been killed.

The Myanmar military regime on Tuesday night released seven anti-regime protesters who were arrested in Chin State’s Mindat on Saturday.

Their arrests provoked daily clashes between civilian resistance fighters and junta forces in the town, in which at least 20 junta troops had been killed as of Tuesday.

“The detainees were released at around 10 p.m. yesterday. There was more shooting last night on the outskirts of the town. No clashes took place this morning,” a member of Mindat’s civilian defense force said on Wednesday.

Junta troops deployed at a toll gate at the entrance to the town have withdrawn, according to residents.

“Though they have released the detainees, we can’t say things are gonna be fine. The shooting has only ceased for a few hours. We can’t say they won’t attack again,” a resident said.
