Myanmar Militants Accused Of Killing 15 Civilians


Myanmar’s military, which currently heads the government, accused local guerrilla fighters of killing 15 civilians in a nighttime mortar attack in a restive central area of the country.

A report in the state-run Myanma Alinn newspaper said so-called People's Defense Forces attacked the village of Ngwe Twin in the southern part of the Sagaing region at 4 a.m. Wednesday with handmade mortars, killing 15 people and injuring seven others, including three monks.

The militia group has since denied the charges.
