Living with her parents Nai– and Mi- in the fisherman village Pai Karain Khawzar, the girl is a 5th grade student attending Middle School located in the nearby Karainkanga village. The walk from the girl´s home village to the school is 1,5 miles long, taking about 20 minutes each way.
At 4: 30 pm on October 21st, the girl began her daily walk back from school. On the way, she had to pass a Coconut garden often used as a resting area for soldiers. Our sources has informed us that the ambush probably found place somewhere between this resting area and the girl´s home village; Captain Way Lin Phyo following her from this point.

In a war that is becoming increasing vengeful, there is concrete evidence for the first time that a belligerent Burmese Army is using an unidentified chemical weapon in the unabated offensive against Kachin rebels in Northern Burma, lamented victims.
For over a week, the unidentified chemical weapon has been in use in three war zones against the Kachin Independence Army (KIA) on Myitkyina-Manmaw (Bhamo) Road in Waingmaw township— Christian Prayer Hill and Lung Zep Kawng in Ga Ra Yang village, and Shwe Nyaung Pyin village, said KIA soldiers, who were attacked by this poison gas.
On Saturday, October 29, Burmese Army troops operating under orders from the Burmese government fired two mortar rounds of chemical weapons on the People’s Army fighters under the KIA in Prayer Hill, said civilian fighters.
La Gun, a civilian fighter and a victim of the chemical weapons attack told Kachin News Group today that, “Two rounds of chemical weapons were fired at us in Prayer Hill. There were seven of us present. Dark smoke billowed from the areas where the mortar shells landed.”
“When I breathed in the dark smoke I felt extremely dizzy, found it hard to breath, thirsty and felt like vomiting for hours,” he added.
The same chemical weapon was used during the week-long fighting in Lung Zep Kawng last week, La Gun said.
The same day, the chemical weapon was launched by the Burmese Army in Ntap Bum battle zone, near the KIA headquarters Laiza and four KIA soldiers felt dizzy, lay on the ground and began vomiting for a long time, said eyewitnesses.
The former General, President Thein Sein is responsible for the orders by a civilian government flouting the Geneva Protocol which forbids use of chemical and biological weapons in both civil and foreign conflict————

MAH — KaPaSa 12 to Produce More Weapons and Increase Chemicals
Department of Immigration officials in Sra Kaeo Province assembled a team of police officers to detain fleeing Cambodian illegal workers escaping the country because of the flood crisis.
Police dispersed their units to surround the Ban Dan and Ban Mai Nong Sai District. They have captured at least 309 illegal workers with the help of local residents, who filed complaints about this matter. Locals were angry that the alien workers have drained water from their bogs and canals and chopped wood for the use of fuel, depleting the area’s resources.
There were also a large number of crooks hiding within the ranks of these illegal workers who rode bicycles and looted agricultural tools from the locals. A majority of these workers come from very poor families. One of the illegal aliens, a 33 year-old woman named Hon, has been doing labor work to support seven children aged between 2 to 10 years old. Hon was a flood evacuee as well.
