LONDON (Reuters) - A violent crackdown on protests that has seen more than 90 killed in Myanmar marks a new low, British foreign minister Dominic Raab said on Saturday, adding that Britain would work to secure a path back to democracy in the country.

"Today's killing of unarmed civilians, including children, marks a new low. We will work with our international partners to end this senseless violence, hold those responsible to account, and secure a path back to democracy," Raab said in a tweet on the crackdown on Myanmar's Armed Forces Day.
