At least 11 people died on Friday in Myanmar, protesting against the Military Coup. People have been killed in the Shan state, Yangon and Mandalay.

With 11 more deaths on Friday, the death toll has now climbed to 231, according to Irrawaddy.

The number can go high as several protestors have been severely injured in the crackdown by the Junta commanded security forces.

The anti-coup protesters seem undeterred as they continue to protest across the country, despite barbaric efforts of the Military to terrorize protesters.
