An ex­plo­sion from a stray ar­tillery shell killed three chil­dren and in­jured four other civil­ians in a vil­lage near Min­bya town­ship, amid fight­ing be­tween Myan­mar forces and the Arakan Army, each of which blamed the other side for the deaths, RFA re­ported. Pan Myaung vil­lage and the hills east of the com­mu­nity have been the site of fight­ing be­tween the two sides since Aug. 23, with govern­ment sol­diers now sta­tioned in the vil­lage and fir­ing heavy weapons, said Pan Myaung vil­lage ad­min­is­tra­tor Tin Aung Kyaw. Most res­i­dents have fled the vil­lage and have sought shel­ter in nearby ar­eas, he said.
