Rape, torture, forced labour and killings continue in Burma as the military regime this week re-convened its National Convention to draft a constitution for the country. According to the latest report from the Free Burma Rangers, a relief organisation working in the conflict areas of eastern Burma, the Burma Army’s offensive in Karen State has continued throughout May and June. In Mon Township, Nyaungelbin District, six villagers were killed on 2 June. Three weeks later, in P’Na Ner village, the village headman was captured by Burma Army troops who slit his throat. Since the beginning of the year, the Burma Army have constructed at least 10 new military camps in Nyaunglebin District alone.
