The death toll since the beginning of the anti-coup protests in Burma is close to 600 people: this is reported by the Association for the Assistance to Political Prisoners. According to the non-profit organization for the defense of human rights, which is based in Thailand, 12 people were killed on April 7, while five others who had lost their lives in recent days but were not counted have been added to the total: the new data bring the total number of victims to 598. Currently, moreover, 2,847 people are in prison.

Yesterday, the Burmese ambassador in Great Britain, Kyaw Zwar Minn, denounced the occupation of the diplomatic headquarters in the heart of London by his country’s military: “When I came out, the soldiers broke into the embassy and took it. They said they received instructions from the capital, so they won’t let me in.” The diplomat, who has repeatedly called for Aung San Suu Kyi’s release and condemned the coup, spent the night in his car.

In the meantime, the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Chamber of Deputies has unanimously approved the resolution proposed by President Piero Fassino on the Asian crisis: the text commits the government “to support the initiatives taken by the United Nations and the European Union, also seeking joint action with Asian countries, to stop the repression in Myanmar, for the release of Aung San Suu Kyi and thousands of people arrested and to promote the return to a democratic system.
