Authorities in Myanmar extended martial law in more areas of the main city of Yangon Monday, amid reports of more protesters killed by security forces.

The advocacy group Assistance Association for Political Prisoners or AAPP, which has been tracking the violence, said at least 20 people were killed Monday night in shootings by security forces.

State-run MRTV news channel announced that four districts of Yangon were under martial law following a weekend of deadly protests.

A spokesman for the United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterras said Monday the Secretary-General [quote] “is appalled by the escalating violence in Myanmar at the hands of the country's military.”

US State Department spokeswoman Jalina Porter said Monday the violence against protesters is [quote] “immoral and indefensible.”

Authorities late Sunday imposed martial law on Hlaingthaya, a suburb of Yangon, after several Chinese-owned factories were set on fire and about 2,000 people had stopped fire engines from reaching the buildings.

China is seen as supportive of the Myanmar junta. A spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry on Monday called the burning of the factories “abhorrent.” He called on Myanmar to take concrete measures to protect the safety of Chinese citizens in Myanmar. He also said the top priority ought to be preventing “new bloody conflicts” in his words and to ease the situation as soon as possible.

In an apparent bid to suppress news of the turmoil, mobile Internet services were blocked Monday in Myanmar. Previously, the services were only turned off at night. The blockage of the Internet forced the postponement of a scheduled court hearing for de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who is under house arrest.
