Two men were riding on a motorcycle when the military shot the passenger to death on Nov 20th at Sagaing Region, Chang U Township. Ko Tin Maung Aye, who was shot by the military, was returning from Chaung-U to the Kyigone village where he lives. He was shot near the Khin Mun village’s football field.
According to a local, Ko Tin Maung Aye was taken by the Military with their car but the man who drove the motorcycle escaped. Ko Tin Maung Aye was a 35 year old greengrocer and had a wife and a 5 year old child. On the same day, around 6 pm, the soldiers showed up with seven non-military cars at the house of Ko Tin Maung Aye and searched through his house.
