The military in Myanmar attacked a civilian concert, killing 80. Three fighter jets bombed the late October festival. It’s the deadliest attack since military leaders seized control of the country in February 2021.

Brian Dennett with AMG International says, “This concert by a very famous local singer there was organized to kind of celebrate an opposition group. And unfortunately, fighter jets were dispatched, bombed the area, and killed the singer actually mid-song.”

The military also prevented severely wounded people from leaving the area to get medical treatment.

Officials from Myanmar’s ousted civilian government say the military has carried out more than 240 airstrikes against civilians since the coup.
