Mohyin residents forced into construction work
Jan 2, 2009 (DVB)–Local people from Mohyin township in northern Burma’s Kachin State have been forced to take part in the construction of an artillery base and radar station.
The base is being built six miles away from Bilu, a local resident said.
“From Bilu, you have to cross paddy fields and climb the mountains,” he said.
“Roads are being built and members of the GE corps can be seen by the roadsides.”
It is not known which artillery battalion is leading the construction of the base. continue http://english.dvb.no/news.php?id=2057
