Two men injured in fighting in Shan State receive treatment.

Two men who were shot in the legs during fighting near their village, escaped on 25 August after being trapped by intense fighting for a week, the Barnabas Fund reported.

Both were shot while riding motorcycles on 18 August in the Mong Yu village area in northern Shan State. The fighting was so intense they had to stay in the village for a week before they could be rescued during a brief lull in the fighting.

The victims were taken from Mong Yu to Kutkai town before being transferred to a hospital in Lashio the next day. Both required surgery for their leg wounds.
