Junta Forces In Myanmar Accused Of Civilian Massacre

 

International aid groups, rebel forces, and foreign governments have accused military junta forces in #Myanmar (#Burma) of carrying out a massacre against civilians in the village of Mo So on #Christmas Eve. NGO Save the Children reported that a convoy of civilian vehicles fleeing combat were stopped by military forces, where dozens of people were either arrested or killed on site while vehicles and bodies were set on fire. At least 35 people, including women and children, are said to be among the dead. Save the Children also stated that two of its workers are missing after the attack. The Junta led government, which took power earlier this year during a coup, only stated that rebel forces were killed and did not mention anything about civilians.
