YANGON, Myanmar (AA) - At least six people were killed in Myanmar on Wednesday when the police and security forces again used lethal weapons to disperse rallies against the Feb. 1 military coup, according to local media reports.

A large number of people once again took to the streets in major cities and towns across the country demanding the restoration of civilian rule in the face of violent repression by the police and security forces.

Two demonstrators were killed after being shot by security forces in the second largest city Mandalay, a leading local news outlet Eleven Media Group reported.

Causality was also reported in the anti-coup rally in the central town of Monywa.

Radio Free Asia's Burma Service uploaded a video in which the police dragged two bodies after cracking down on the protesters in Monywa in the central Sagaing region on Wednesday.

However, the Monywa Gazette, another local news outlet, reported that five people were killed by security forces in the town.

In the country's commercial capital Yangon, a protester died of gun injuries, Khit Thi Media reported, citing volunteer rescue workers as witnesses.

Footages showing the police set up temporary barricades in the northern Okalapa township of Yangon were also shared on social media.​​​​​​​
