China puts army on high alert

Post by Saiua » Mon Nov 21, 2016 4:21 pm

China has said its army is on high alert after armed groups in Burma attacked military and police posts close to their shared border at the weekend and that it is providing shelter for a number of people who fled the fighting.

The official Xinhua news agency said in a report late on Sunday three armed groups simultaneously attacked security posts in the border towns of Muse and Kutkai in Burma's northeastern Shan state earlier in the day.

Xinhua, citing unidentified sources, said there were military and civilian casualties but gave no other details.
