Myanmar people flooding in China due to war

MYANMAR residents are flooding in neighboring Yunnan Province in southwest China yesterday amid a domestic war, the provincial government said.

The number of Myanmar people fleeding from Kokang area of Shan state in northeastern Myanmar to the bordering Chinese city of Lincang is still increasing by press time, according to sources from the foreign affairs office of the provincial government of Yunnan.

Yunnan is helping them to settle down in designated areas with supply of life necessities and medical care as humanitarian assistance, in an effort to safeguard bilateral friendly relations and maintain stability in the border areas, the source said.
