BREAKING NEWS! : Central Karen State: Burma Army Attacks against villagers in Dooplaya District

Displaced families moving in search of a secure hiding place in Dooplaya District.

Villagers seek refuge from attacks in Dooplaya District. About 280 villagers have fled attacks in this area.

Burma Army and DKBA troops continue to attack civilians and KNLA troops in central Karen State along the Thai border. Villagers now have fewer and fewer places to hide and, despite the great need, aid is being blocked from reaching them in a timely manner. Hundreds have been displaced, at least one villager has been wounded by DKBA mortar fire, and attacking troops have captured and forced more than 20 villagers to porter loads in support of the attacks. It has been reported that DKBA soldiers have crossed the nearby border and have beaten and molested villagers, making it very difficult for the displaced to find safe refuge, and for relief workers and aid to reach those in need.

Children recently displaced by DKBA and Burma Army attacks warm themselves by a fire as winter temperatures make life on the run difficult.
