. Myanmar: The small embattled town that stood up to the army « JO LEE MAGAZINE

BBC NEWS/Last week, Myanmar’s military stormed into the town of Mindat, where a local militia group had put up tenacious resistance to the armed forces.

Much of the population fled into the forest after armed forces bombarded the town with mortars and rockets.

Volunteers say many of them now need urgent humanitarian assistance. They have little food or shelter, and no access to medical care.

The army has blocked road access to the town, and cut off its water supply, making life very difficult for those who stayed behind.
