Myanmar: "Caught in the middle": Abuses against civilians amid conflict in Myanmar’s northern Shan State
This report documents violations of international humanitarian and human rights law committed in northern Shan State, where civilians caught between the Myanmar military and different ethnic armed groups risk a catalogue of abuses by all sides. It details how the military continues to engage in an all-too familiar pattern of arbitrary arrests, detention, torture and other ill-treatment, and indiscriminate attacks. The report also presents evidence that ethnic armed groups commit abuses against civilians, including abductions, torture and other ill-treatment, forced labour, and extortion. The situation highlights the need for international action to ensure that those responsible for serious crimes in Myanmar are held accountable.
