An Arizona congressman has stated that the Burma army has committed
human rights violations against the ethnic Kachin.
“The atrocities committed against the Kachin by the Burma Army may amount
to war crimes or crimes against humanity” said Trent Franks, co-chairman
of the International Religious Freedom Caucus. The conservative Republican
lawmaker's comments appeared in an opinion piece published
by the Washington Times newspaper last Monday.
