Headline: ASIA/MYANMAR – Violence and tensions in Chin and Rakhine States: food emergency and elections at risk

Yangon – More than 60,000 civilians in the Burmese State of Chin are currently facing a severe food shortage due to the ongoing fighting between the national army and the Arakan Army rebels. This is what the fundamental rights organization Khumi Affairs Coordination Council denounced in recent days according to which 246 villages in the Paletwa area are in desperate need of rice and food because of the situation created by the war between the Burmese army and the armed separatist group operating between Chin and Rakhine States in northern Myanmar.
