Myanmar: Fear of torture/extra-judicial executions/Forcible relocation

, Index number: ASA 16/004/2006

Ethnic minority villagers in northern Kayin (Karen) state and in the east of an area known as Bago Division, in eastern Myanmar, are at risk of human rights violations following a recent escalation in counter-insurgency operations against the Karen National Union (KNU) by the Myanmar army. Reports indicate that civilians have been forcibly relocated and that several civilians, including women and children, may have been extra-judicially killed. Individuals are also reported to have been tortured by the army.
