The outgoing U.N. envoy to Myanmar says civil war has spread throughout the country.

Brian Dennett describes the brutal fighting via AMG international partners in the country. “One community effectively held off the military using handmade guns and weapons. They were celebrating that fact, only to be bombed by an aircraft sent by the military government. That has just devastated that entire community.”

Grasping for control

Neither the U.N. nor the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has recognized the military junta as Myanmar’s government. But Dennett says the military has only grasped for more control. “I mean, they’re using every tactic they can to continue to gain authority in the area, including torture, and entering even small villages.”
