A woman has been shot in the head while protesting against Myanmar’s military coup.

On her current state at the moment, there are reports from rights groups and news outlets that she was also severely injured and in a critical condition.

Sources also confirmed that the incident occurred while the police were trying to disperse protesters using water cannon, rubber bullets and live rounds, leaving her  hurt at a protest on Tuesday in the capital city of Nay Pyi Taw.

At the moment, there are no casualties, and but there are reports of serious injuries as police have increased their use of force.

In reaction to the development, a lot of people have come out to the streets in thousands to protest against the coup, which overthrew Aung San Suu Kyi’s democratically-elected government last week, despite a recent ban on large gatherings and a night curfew.

For a fifth consecutive day, demonstrations re-started on Wednesday morning. The demonstration came with a large group of civil servants gathering in Nay Pyi Taw to protest.
