On the morning of June 21, the armed wing of the junta raided Moe Gyo Pyin (North) Village, near Letpadaung Copper Mining Project in Salingyi Township, Sagaing Region. They fired with heavy weaponry, and tortured and killed two locals named Tin Soe and Pwa Gyi, who were arrested after running into the military column. Their bodies were discovered on the morning of June 22 by some locals in the fields near the village. An eyewitness reported that "Tin Soe's neck was severed. Pwa Gyi got both of his hands cut down from his wrists. Tin Soe's body was sliced with blades all over like a fish. Pwa Gyi was disemboweled and his guts were falling out".
