The Myanmar News Agency has reported on Monday that Sunday’s clashes between anti-coup protesters and security forces in Myanmar left at least 59 people killed and 129 injured according to hospital data.

The actual toll is estimated to be even higher; the reports came from three hospitals, Yangon General, Hlaing Tharyar, and Thingangyun Sanpya, but doctors and rescue workers expect the final toll to be much higher.

According to the agency the largest demonstrations were reportedly held in Yangon, Mandalay, Bago, and Hpakan.

The agency said that on Sunday night, following the protests, martial law declared state of emergency in two of Yangons industrial townships, Hlaing Tharyar and Shwepyitha.

Adding that regardless of the casualties, the protests have continued in Mandalay and Yangon since Monday morning.
