When five employees of the "Moe Htet Myint" towers installation company in Yay Kyi Ai Street, Wireless Quarter, Mingladon township of Yangon Division, were on their way to Buthidaung from Rathedaung in Arakan, they had been fired by the Myanmar Army troops with heavy and light machine guns near Kyauk-Tan village in Rathedaung township on 15 March 2020.
