A NUN begs on her knees for police to stop shooting protesters in Myanmar.
Sister Ann Rose Nu Tawng pleaded with two cops, also kneeling, with no success.
Tawng said senior officers assured they were just clearing the road in Myitkyina town.
She said: “I begged them not to hurt the protesters, but to treat them kindly.”
Tawng and one of the policemen are seen touching their foreheads to the ground, but gunfire started soon afterwards.
At least two protesters were killed and several others injured, she and other witnesses said. A military spokesman and police in Myitkyina did not respond to requests for comment.
