Myanmar’s junta brands rivals as a terrorist group

It’s been a hundred days since the military in Myanmar staged a coup and detained civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

The time since has been marked by protests, violence, and uncertainty.

Myanmar’s junta has designated the rival National Unity Government (NUG) a terrorist group, blaming it for killings, bombings, and arson, state media said on Saturday.

After Myanmar’s February 1 coup, a group of ousted lawmakers — many of them previously part of Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy party — formed a shadow government.

State-controlled television slammed the NUG as a terror group, as well as the affiliated Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (CRPH) group.

The junta disputes those figures and says at least two dozen members of the security forces have been killed in protests.

Fighting has also flared on Myanmar’s periphery with ethnic armies that have been fighting for decades and some of which have rallied behind the protesters.

State television said the army had advanced against the Kachin Independence Army in northern Myanmar, but there was no independent confirmation.

In western Myanmar, the newly formed Chinland Defence Force said it had overrun an army camp. The army made no comment on the report.

Myanmar’s army took power alleging fraud in a November election that was swept by the party of Suu Kyi,

who fought for democracy for decades before tentative reforms began a decade ago. The electoral commission had rejected the army’s complaints.
