At least 80 people are said to have been killed in an airstrike in Myanmar last week.


Fighter jets of the military junta attacked crowds attending a concert, held by the main political organisation of the country’s Kachin ethnic minority.


The strike has been widely condemned as a war crime, while Myanmar’s Generals have denied targeting civilians.


Warning: There are some distressing scenes in this report.
