  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Welcome to the jungle: Myanmar’s rebels teach combat skills to coup protesters” – below is their description.

    Four months after #Myanmar’s #military ousted civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi and unleashed a brutal crackdown on dissent that has killed hundreds, some urban protesters have fled the cities and reappeared in #rebel-held jungle territory, to train for combat against the military regime. Reliable estimates are hard to come by, but analysts suspect hundreds of people in Myanmar have travelled into #insurgent-held areas to receive crash courses in combat techniques.
