BANGKOK (AP) — Witnesses say an army vehicle plowed into a peaceful march by anti-government protesters in military-ruled Myanmar’s biggest city, reportedly killing at least three people. Sunday’s march was one of at least three held in Yangon, and similar rallies were reported in other parts of the country a day ahead of an expected verdict in the first of about a dozen criminal cases against former leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who was toppled in a February military takeover. A video posted on social media shows a speeding army truck barreling into the marchers from behind. A witness says the protesters were on his street for just two minutes before the military truck hit them.
