A monitoring group in Myanmar has appealed for international action, expressing concern over the torture and murder of anti-coup protesters in the Southeast Asian nation after the military broadcast images of six young detainees bearing severe signs of abuse. Al Jazeera quotes Kim Jolliffe, a researcher on Myanmar civilian and military relations, as saying that the military’s decision to broadcast images of the six detainees was aimed at sowing fear. “The Myanmar junta’s strategy from start to finish is based on the same gambit: ‘We can be more brutal than you. We can be more shockingly hurtful and terrifying than you’,” Jolliffe said in a tweet. “That is all they have. But it knows no bounds.”
