More than 520 civilians have been killed since the start of February. On Tuesday, the military junta used missles on thier own citizens... forcing thousands to flee their homes and seek medical treatment in neighbouring Thailand. Protesters have defied strict curfews to hold funerals for those killed in the violence.
