The Council adopted a resolution on Wednesday calling for the military to restore civilian rule.
Lee Seung-jae has more.
The UN Human Rights Council on Wednesday voiced its concerns at the "disproportionate use of force" in Myanmar,... since the military overthrew the civilian-led government in February's coup.
The Council's 47 members adopted a resolution calling on the military to restore civilian rule,... while pushing for a UN rights office in Myanmar.
It added the military should also immediately release the de-facto civilian leader, Aung San Suu Kyi.
The resolution was adopted without a vote.
The resolution, proposed by the EU, was criticized by Myanmar,... calling it "politicized, one-sided, with a lack of impartiality, independence and credibility".
Myanmar's deputy foreign minister Kyaw Myo Htut said elements of the resolution were "intrusive and factually incorrect".
He took particular issue with a reference to possible action by the International Criminal Court,... which he called a "threat and a direct challenge" to the country's sovereignty.
Hundreds of protesters who have been imprisoned in Myanmar have been released,... in what is being seen as the first gesture by the military to placate the protest movement.
According to the state-run TV,... 628 protesters were freed.
The released appear to be hundreds of students that were detained in early March.
According to data compiled by NGOs,... more than 260 people have been killed during the nearly two month-long protest,... with thousands others arrested.
