Yangon: Myanmar’s leading ethnic rebel army says at least five civilians have been killed a day after a renewed junta crackdown on anti-insurgency protests.

The Kachin Liberation Army (KIA) said it shot down a helicopter gun during fierce clashes near the northern town of Momok. Security forces have tried to stop pro-democracy demonstrations with deadly force on a daily basis, while long-running clashes with ethnic insurgents have sparked fierce fighting.
