Myanmar’s chief of military affairs security, Lieutenant General Mya Htun Oo, said Saturday that 61 military and police officers and around 72 rebels have been killed since the recent spate of fighting erupted on February 9, when rebels attacked the army troops in the northeastern Shan State. More than 30,000 people fled the restive area into the neighboring China after the army launched a heavy onslaught on the rebels.
