U.S. says Myanmar military's violence against protesters is 'immoral and indefensible'

- U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jalina Porter said on Monday the Myanmar military's violence against protesters was "immoral and indefensible" after more bloodshed over the weekend.

"Burmese security forces have literally attacked their own people, killing dozens throughout the country," Porter said on a call with reporters.
