Thousands attend rally over the killing of civilians in Kyaukme township (Shan state) July 10; avoid all areas of protest

TIMEFRAME expected from 7/11/2020, 12:00 AM until 7/14/2020, 11:59 PM (Asia/Rangoon). COUNTRY/REGION Kyaukme township (Shan state)


An estimated 10,000 villagers in Kyaukme township (Shan state) rallied in memoriam on Friday, July 10, over the reported unintentional government shooting of villagers in late June. According to local sources, Burmese troops killed the villagers while engaged in clashes with the Restoration Council of Shan State/Shan State Army-South (RCSS/SSA-S), one of the multiple ethnic army groups known to operate in the region. The clashes were reportedly over a dispute in which the army accused that the RCSS had crossed without advance notice into prohibited territory.


Individuals in Shan state are advised to monitor developments to the situation, remain vigilant for militant and military activity, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments.
