Recommended Posts

This is sad and has been going on for so long that it no longer really gains international attention.
Tourist can no longer take the train across the Gokteik Viaduct or travel to Pyin Oo Lwin & Hsipaw. Did this trip By motorcycle back in 2014. https://phuket.zenfolio.com/p542381057 Its a beautiful area of Burma



15 Myanmar Soldiers, Police and Civilians Dead in Coordinated Attacks
MANDALAY—At least 15 have died and three have been injured in coordinated rebel attacks across in Mandalay Region and neighboring northern Shan State on Thursday, a day that began with the first attack on the Myanmar military’s Defense Service Technological Academy (DSTA) in decades.

In the deadliest, at least seven soldiers and three police were killed in an attack on a police security outpost on the Goke Twin Bridge in Naung Cho Township, according to volunteer rescue workers there.

......the attacks could be revenge for the military’s seizure of 16 billion kyats worth of drugs in Kutkai Township, in northern Shan State, on July 25, and 5 billion kyats worth of drugs and arms seized in Rathaetaung Township, in Rakhine State, on Aug. 8.
