Rape as a weapon of war?


This is the sad and disturbing story of a teenage girl from Shan State, Burma. Her parents were shot before her very eyes, and she was then raped by Burmese junta soldiers. Many other women have endured such an ordeal and have sought refuge across the border in Thailand. They claim the Burmese authorities are clearly giving the go-ahead to use rape as a military weapon in operations against ethnic rebellions.
