Burma Army Kills Civilians in Kachin State: Report

User Rating: / 0
PoorBest 

At least two civilians were killed by Burma’s government army in Kachin State last month, despite an agreement signed in late May to deescalate tensions between government forces and the Kachin Independence Army (KIA), according to Christian Solidarity Worldwide, a UK-based rights group. In a statement released on Friday, the group said that 45-year-old Zahkung Lum Hkawng was tortured, beaten and shot to death on June 14 after being accused of leading Burmese troops into a KIA ambush. Another unidentified victim was killed the same day on the road between Nan Gat and Ying La villages, the group said, adding that a growing government army presence in the area has increased the risk of similar incidents occurring.
