Burmese military attacked another Church in Eastern Myanmar
During the evening of the 26th of May, another church in Kayah state was attacked by the Burmese military.
According to UCA News, artillery fire hit St. Joseph’s Church in the town of Demoso, breaking windows and putting holes in the church walls. Catholic sources stated that nobody was inside the church compound when the attack took place, since everyone in Demoso has fled to safer areas due to the heavy fighting.
Just five days prior to this incident, the Burmese military attacked the Sacred Heart Church near Loikaw, also in Kayah state. That attack killed four and wounded eight refugees who were sheltering in the church.
