In Myanmar’s hinterland, army uproots ethnic Karen villagers

BANGKOK (AP) — In the jungles of southeast Myanmar, the army was shooting and otherwise oppressing civilians long before last month’s military coup. This largely unseen repression continues even now. In the country’s remote southeast, an army offensive has driven as many as 8,000 ethnic Karen people to flee their homes in what aid groups said is the worst upheaval there for nearly 10 years.
