At least 160 killed in clashes on Myanmar-China border: army

At least 160 killed in clashes on Myanmar-China border: armyAt least 160 people have died in three months of clashes between the military and ethnic armed groups in Myanmar’s Shan state, a senior army official said Tuesday, amid efforts to revive flagging peace talks. More than 20,000 people have been displaced since fighting between the army and several armed ethnic groups erupted near the border with China in late November. The unrest has rippled across the northern state of Shan and into neighbouring Kachin, hampering a push by Aung San Suu Kyi’s government to end the country’s decades-long borderland conflicts.
