Deadly Landslide Hits Karenni Christian Village in Myanmar

Landslide-compressedMYANMAR (MNN/VBB) Eight days ago, heavy rains came as another blow to the village of Mawchi in Kayah State, Myanmar.

Already dealing with the country’s worst floods in 100 years, which struck from late July to August, the deluge caused a river to flood a bridge, wash out roads, and slow down emergency personnel dealing with deadly landslides in the area. Local authorities are relocating those living in disaster-hit areas to relief camps.

Dyann Romeijn, a spokeswoman for Vision Beyond Borders, says, “It’s in a village that our contacts work with, out of the refugee camps, and it’s predominantly a Christian village.

    So was it deadly? Or were they just displaced? Nothing in either article mentions anyone being killed. False headlines just stopped a donation.

      From Vision Beyond Borders contact — ” Last Sunday, a major landslide happened in Maw Chi village, total 5 sections were hit. Many people lost their lives and still many are
      unaccounted for. They need help to buy, food, tents, tools and clothes.” (Oct. 14)

      Maybe contact Vision Beyond Borders or MNN next time for clarification instead of assuming headlines are false…

        The headlines was false based on the information in your article. If you had done your job in the first place the article would have been complete, but like a typical reporter who blurted out an unsubstantiated headline you find it easier to blame the reader for your mistake. ..arrogance and incompetence combined……..you should go far in the media.
