    Washington: International action is needed urgently to prevent mass deaths in Kayah State, United Nations (UN) Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Myanmar Tom Andrews has warned.

    "Mass deaths from starvation, disease and exposure could occur in Kayah State after many of the 100,000 forced to flee into forests from junta bombs are now cut off from food, water and medicine by the junta," Andrews wrote on his twiiter page on Wednesday.

     



    "The international community must act," he added.

    On Monday, the UN Country Team in Myanmar which underscored the rapidly deteriorating security and humanitarian situation in Kayah State and other parts of the country, linked to protests caused by the military takeover.

    In its appeal, the UN Country Team reiterated earlier calls for all parties to protect all civilians and civilian infrastructure, particularly medical units and health workers.

    The team also called on the security forces to allow for a safe passage of humanitarian supplies and personnel and to facilitate our ability to directly provide aid to all those who need it.
