Two Kachin IDPs from Hka Hkye Camp, located located near Maija-yang city on China-Burma border, were injured by land mine on Monday at around 11:30.

The two women were travelling from Loi Je to Maija-Yang when the landmine exploded. According to a local source in Loi Je, the landmines were planted by Burmese army troops.

An aid worker says the two women were later taken to Maija-Yang hospital and describes their condition as “not very serious”.
