Myanmar: Army helicopters allegedly fire on school, killing six

Source: CNN

“At least six children were killed and 17 wounded when army helicopters shot at a school in Myanmar, media reports and residents said on Monday, as the military said it opened fire because rebels were using the building to attack its forces. Myanmar has been gripped by violence since the army overthrew an elected government early last year. Opposition movements, some of them armed, have since emerged across the country, which the military has countered with lethal force. Reuters could not independently verify details of the violence that took place on Friday in the village of Let Yet Kone in the central Sagaing region. According to reports in the Mizzima and Irrawaddy news portals, army helicopters had opened fire on the school housed in a Buddhist monastery in the village.” (09/20/22)
