Myanmar Atrocities Show Need for International Action
Photos and video circulated online show the remains of the victims in Don Taw village, Sagaing Region, in northwestern Myanmar. Villagers returning from hiding after fleeing a military raid used their mobile phones to record the charred remains on December 7, 2021. Local media reported that government security forces committed the killings in retaliation for an attack earlier that morning by anti-junta militia.
The United Nations issued a statement that it was “appalled and alarmed at the escalation of grave human rights abuses in Myanmar.”
