Amnesty International has called the deadly crackdown on Burmese anti-coup protests a “killing spree” and accused the military of extrajudicial executions. Meanwhile, the United Nations Security Council has condemned the violent response to protests over the last six weeks but stopped short of condemning the actual February 1 coup or threatening sanctions. A Burmese rights group says at least 60 people have been killed and over 2,000 detained since the start of protests.
