SNLD Campaign Car Tumbles Into Shweli River, Killing Three, Child Still Missing

Sai Kyaw Thein, an SNLD party member and parliamentarian for Muse Township constituency-1, told SHAN that the missing child is five-years-old. “The boat stopped there,” he explained, while gesturing toward the river. “And we were here, where three of the other vehicles stopped in line. Then the car passed over us, accidentally tumbling into the river.”

Thaung Tun, with Muse’s Garuna Social Volunteer Team, told SHAN the bodies of three women were sent to Muse Public Hospital for an autopsy. One man and two women escaped the crash. “We’re still searching for the missing child.”
