Demonstrators, observing the anniversary of the death of Sun Yat-sen, were fired upon by police after stopping in front of a precinct station at Kreta Ayer, and six people were killed.

Outside the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, and assassination attempt was made against Soviet Politburo member Nikolai Bukharin. The Soviets claimed that the failed crime had been the work of British intelligence agents, and a group of “counterrevolutionaries” were executed on June 9, 1927. In 1938, Bukharin himself was accused of plotting against the government and was executed.
