A father and his teenage son were among the three bodies found with bullet holes and their hands tied behind their backs in a rice field in Sagaing Region on Thursday, 11 November.
According to a local source, Set Aung, 35, and his son Maung Poe Chit, a Grade 9 student, and Myint Ngwe, 45, were killed by the Burma Army.
The villagers from Shan Kalon were rounded up by the military on 7 November after fighting broke out with resistance groups in Kawlin Township.
Shan Kalon has 400 houses and is 15 miles from Kawlin Township.
Human rights groups have criticised the junta’s forces for their crimes against humanity during the conflict against ethnic armed organisations and civil resistance groups in Burma.
Connectivity in Sagaing Region have been cut off since September, making it difficult to get up-to-date information on the army’s offensives. Numerous soldiers have been deployed in the region to wipe out the resistance groups while attacking civilians, causing them to flee en masse.
