Burma-Myanmar: Burmese army torches Shan State Army-South (SSA-S) outpost

Soldiers from the SSA-S display their military skills at Shan resistance day at their headquarters in Loi Taileng in February 2011

An outpost belonging to the Shan State Army-South (SSA-S) in northeastern Burma was burnt down on Sunday by government soldiers, who claimed to be searching for four Burmese “civilians” who went missing at the end of last month, rebels say.

Burmese soldiers raided an SSA-S outpost in Tenghkam village in Namhkam township in northern Shan state on Sunday under the premise of looking for the four individuals – who are believed to be military intelligence personnel – and set it on fire when they could not be found, according to the rebels.

The four went missing in Kawng Waing village-tract, shortly after being seen selling pictures of public figures to locals in the area. The Burmese army later accused the SSA-S of detaining them – an allegation which the rebel group has denied.
