Four Chinese Workers Killed Due to Myanmar Ethnic Conflict on the Border

Four Chinese people were killed in Yunnan province by a bomb dropped from a Myanmar warplane last Friday.

Though Beijing had warned of escalating violence across China’s southwestern border before.

“The bomb hit a sugarcane field and killing the four workers and injuring nine others.” Xinhua agency said.

Beijing has previously warned just after the dramatic upsurge of ethnic conflict happened in Myanmar’s northeastern Shan state.

More than 30,000 people fled from Myanmar into Yunnan province said Xinhua.

Early Saturday morning, Chinese Deputy Foreign Minister Liu Zhenmin had summoned Myanmar ambassador Thit Linn Ohn protest the deaths.

Meanwhile he also urged Myanmar to “thoroughly investigate” and “take immediate and effective measures to prevent recurrence of such incidents” said Xinhua.
