Mandalay is one of the cities where civilians still major protests daily. Today, healthcare personnel staged a large protest that was dispersed by security forces. Following this, they tresspassed onto mosque grounds, between 74th street and 37th street. The protest was completely irrelevant to the mosque. They ended up killing one civilian. The victim was 28 years old Ko Htet who worked at a car workshop, leaving a five year old son. Security forces also arrested five children, aged between 10 and 16, sleeping in the mosque.

According to a source that lives in Mandalay, 5 were injured. Most of the civilians were also asleep, and wake up late due to Ramadan. Security forces woke the people up and arrested them.
