Local estimates show at least 10,000 people have fled their homes in Kayah state after the latest round of violence. Myanmar’s deposed leader Aung San Suu Kyi appeared at a court hearing on May 24, the first time she’s been seen in public since her arrest, following the overthrow of the civilian government nearly four months ago.
