Rebels who stormed Chinpon village yesterday also captured about 40 children and pre-school teachers trapped in the village and turned them into human shields. The villagers were not allowed to flee as the rebels suddenly arrived by helicopter. Now the rebels are searching and destroying nearby villages, including Chinpon. There is a possibility that the village will be set on fire. Parents who rescued their children were also detained. Yinmarpin and Pearl areas are suffering from the inhumane violence of the military council.
