Fresh fighting erupts in Myanmar


Tens of thousands have fled to the border town of Nansan in China’s Yunnan province after clashes in Kokang in Myanmar’s Shan state, following the deployment of Myanmar government troops. China has called on Myanmar to maintain stability in the border region and urged further measures to protect the security and legal rights of Chinese citizens there.

The fighting began after the Myanmar military, allied with a local splinter group, took control of facilities run by the Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army (MNDAA) in Laogai, the capital of Shan state.
