Fighting Continues in Kachin State despite high level meetings between the Burmese government and the Kachin Independence Organization.
"Fighting between the Kachin Independence
Army (KIA) and Burma military broke out last weekend near Sawlaw and
Chipwe in northern Kachin state. The clashes started after government
troops from Infantry Battalion 29 attacked the KIA Battalion 10 on
Saturday. Chipwe, located north east of the Kachin state capital
Myitkyina, is home to a small 2,000 MW dam built to supply electricity
for the construction of the now officially suspended Myitsone dam."
