The Kachin Independence Army (KIA), an ethnic armed group, is reported to be planting mines in the environs of villages and plantations.
Some people who managed to escape from a forced recruitment said that they faced torture, racial discrimination, long detention and killings. According to them, the mobilization of new members includes young people including women, who were molested.
Families of the victims, as well as locals, are now living in constant fear.
Locals said that 782 men and 36 women were conscripted, with 535 remaining to escape.
According to reports, KIA’s mine attacks from October 2013 to November 2014 left 10 people dead, injuring 37. —Myawady
