Fight­ing be­tween sol­diers from the gov­ern­ment’s Bor­der Guard Force (BGF) and a splin­ter group of the Demo­cratic Karen Benev­o­lent Army (DKBA) oc­curred on the 8 Oc­to­ber at around 10 am and con­tin­ued on the old Kawkareik-Myawaddy Road.

The shoot­ings hap­pened at a BGF check­point when its sol­diers at­tempted to stop a pickup. The pickup re­fused to stop and the BGF troops opened fire killing three men be­lieved to be DKBA sol­diers.

DKBA of­fi­cials later de­nied that the three men be­longed to their or­ga­ni­za­tion.
