Myanmar military executes four democracy activists

Four democracy activists have been executed by Myanmar’s military in what is believed to be the first use of capital punishment in decades.

Former lawmaker Phyo Zeya Thaw, writer and activist Ko Jimmy, Hla Myo Aung and Aung Thura Zaw were accused of committing “terror acts”. 

The executions, which were first announced by the military in June, drew international condemnation.

They come in the wake of a 2021 military coup.
