The U.S. Treasury Department has imposed sanctions on two more Myanmar military officials in response to the killing of peaceful protesters.

Axar.az reports citing foreign media that the measures announced late Monday target Moe Myint Tun and Maung Maung Kyaw.

A Treasury Department statement called on Myanmar’s military to reinstall the country’s democratically elected government or face further actions.

“The United States will continue to work with partners throughout the region and the world to press the Burmese military and police to cease all violence against peaceful protestors, to support the restoration of democracy and the rule of law in Burma, to urge for the immediate release of political prisoners, including State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi and President Win Myint, and to promote accountability for those responsible for attempting to reverse Burma’s progress toward democracy,” the statement said.
