A fresh clash between rival ethnic armed groups in Myanmar’s war-torn Shan state forced more than 800 villagers to flee their homes and seek shelter in Buddhist monasteries on Monday according to an RFA report quoting an NGO worker and a village chief.
        The fighting broke out a day earlier between troops from the Restoration Council of Shan State/Shan State Army-South (RCSS/SSA-S) and soldiers from the Ta’ang National Liberation Army (TNLA) near Pangkut village in Namtu township, Nang Kham Mie from the Mangsan Charity Organization told RFA’s Myanmar Service.
