CNA Staff, Apr 1, 2021 / 03:00 am (CNA).- Cardinal Charles Maung Bo has said that “merciless killings” of protesters following a Feb. 1 military coup have turned Burma into a “21st-century Calvary.”

In an Easter message posted on the Facebook page of Yangon archdiocese March 31, the cardinal referred to the Epistle to the Romans in which St. Paul offers consolation to suffering Christians who, Bo said, are “crucified unjustly.”

“Five hundred of our countrymen and women were crucified,” he said, referring to the death toll estimated by the advocacy group Assistance Association for Political Prisoners.
