Abuses and Denial of Aid Endangering Ethnic Minorities in Northern Myanmar

Abuses and Denial of Aid Endangering Ethnic Minorities in Northern Myanmar

This Refugees International report details how Myanmar’s military - the same military responsible for ethnic cleansing of Rohingya Muslims in western Myanmar - is also responsible for severe human rights abuses and blocking of life-saving aid to a mostly Christian minority in the north of the country.  A team from Refugees International was able to access a restricted area outside of government control in Myanmar’s Kachin State to document the conditions of displaced persons.
