They shoot with demonstrators!

As if it wasn’t bad enough what the military regime in Myanmar/Burma (now what’s the name?) is doing – and not just during the current demonstrations –, now the ZDFtext reports about shooting with demonstrators:

ZDFtext: Rangun: Sie sollen auch wieder Demonstranten geschlagen und geschossen haben. Es soll sich um Warnschüsse handeln.

Translation: “They reportedly have beaten and shot with demonstrators again. They say it was warning shots.”

They must have quite big cannons… and how does this work, a warning shot of demonstrators – are they shot only slowly or a low height so they don’t die when falling back down? :mrgreen:

Alright, it may be just a typo – one little letter in the German text so it would read “…have beaten and shot at…” :razz: Bad enough.
