The woman spoke to reporters on Friday evening. “I want the truth to be revealed,” he said. So I went to the police station and told the truth.
Uga villagers said members of the Myanmar army entered their village around 6 a.m. on June 29. Seeing the soldiers, the men fled from the village. Because they were feared to be detained on the pretext of collaborating with the Arakan Army.
