Nun Prays With Police Amid Myanmar Violence

A nun knelt and prayed with police in Myitkyina, Myanmar, on March 8, imploring them to stop shooting at protesters, according to video by a local outlet.

Sister Ann Rose Nu Tawng was interviewed by Reuters, who said she pleaded with the officers for an end to violence. “I told them that they can kill me, I am not standing up until they give their promise that they will not brutally crack down on protesters,” Reuters quoted her as saying.

The nun’s pleas proved in vain, with at least two people killed in Myitkyina that day. Credit: Myitkyina News Journal via Storyful
