NGOs warning of the danger of civil war which would have devastating impact on civilians

Violence in post-coup Myanmar has escalated as anti-junta “self-defense” forces step up to confront the military, a report said Monday.

Myanmar has been in turmoil since the February coup that ousted Aung San Suu Kyi’s government, with more than 880 killed in a junta crackdown on dissent, according to a local monitoring group.

In some areas, locals – often using rudimentary weapons – have formed “defense forces” to fight back.

In response, the military has used helicopters and artillery.
