"Government troops in Myanmar have attacked one of the country's powerful northern militias with artillery in a bid to force rebel fighters from a strategic region where China is constructing major hydropower plants. The fighting, which began Thursday, has killed at least four people and forced 2,000 more to flee, according to the U.S. Campaign for Burma." (06/13/11)
