News about dog biting man

Commander of SPDC MOC No. 5 Brig. Kaung Myat who is assigned to KNU Brigade 2 territory Toungoo District asserted, "Abusing you locals is uneventful for the media. It won't get into news anymore. The media won't print this kind of news anymore. Nor will radio stations air such pieces. Don't count on them for your suffering. We can torment you as much as we like." Claiming thus, he is carrying out tortures and human rights violations upon the people in Toungoo District blatantly.

Since early January, SPDC troops are forcing local populace of twelve villages in Bawgaligyee area to carry army ration supplies and act as human minesweepers on auto roads. On February 6, junta troops forced fifty Bawgali villagers and twenty Yethogyee villagers to walk abreast throughout the length of Bawgali road in order to act as human shields and also as human minesweepers. Moreover the army commandeered cars owned by Saw Maung Krue and Saw Tha Hto of Bawgali village and forced them to drive on the road to sweep any hidden mines.

As the army extorted giant bamboo poles (Dendrocalamus giganteus) from villages in the vicinity for construction of army outposts and fences, the giant bamboo is now in danger of extinction.

On February 6 at about 7:00 PM, SPDC soldiers camping in Tate-pu outpost shelled Tate-pu village without any apparent cause, wounding Naw Bway Phaw (aged 18), Naw Khoe Khoe (aged 14 ) and motherless child Naw Day Moo Seet (aged 1) of Tate-pu village and Naw Hekhalay (aged 22) of Phalawbawdel village and vendor Maung Min Htin (aged 30) of Zayatkyee Town.

Tactical Operations Commander Kan Paw Oo under the command of MOC No. 5 ordered villagers along the electricity grid lines in Toungoo District Thandaung Gyee area to pay compensation for bombed pylons.

In KNU Brigade 1 territory Thaton District, DKBA battalions 907 and 999 in joint operations with SPDC Army's LIR 214 and IB 96 are carrying out forced labor and physical torture upon the people. IB 96 outpost in-charge Myo Zaw has ordered Thetbawhtur, Pokalaylo and other villages to supply 500 bamboo poles each.
