Myanmar’s police force is planning to destroy rubber bullets and tear gas, as they do not meet international standards, according to an unnamed colonel from the police headquarters.
“Some of the riot gear we use is locally made and some is bought from Singapore via brokers. It is out of date and we will destroy all of it,” the colonel said.
“The police force is testing new tear gas and rubber bullets. They will cause less pain,” said Lt Col Thura Boni.
