Myanmar Rebels Kill 7 Soldiers, Wound 20
Myanmar, also known as Burma, says ethnic rebels attacked an army outpost near the border with China last week, killing seven soldiers and wounding 20 others.

State-run media reports Monday say Kokang fighters surrounded the post for two days in northern Shan State.

The Ta'ang National Liberation Army (TNLA), which is allied with the Kokang guerrillas, says fighting in the area was still ongoing Monday. Tar Phone Kyaw, secretary of TNLA, disputes the government account and blames the Army for the violence.

“The area where fighting took place this week are controlled by our groups - TNLA and Kokang, then the fighting took place because the government troops entered the area. We didn't make any strikes against military outposts held by government forces," said Kyaw.
