A new report by Human Rights Watch finds Burmese security forces encircled, then killed anti-coup protesters at a demonstration in Rangoon in March as part of a pre-planned attack. At least 65 people were shot dead. According to a local rights monitor, over 1,300 people have been killed by the military junta since the February 1 coup. This comes as the announcement of the first verdicts in a series of charges against deposed and detained civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi was delayed until Monday of next week.
