Decades of conflict between the Burmese army and ethnic insurgent groups demanding increased political autonomy from Rangoon have devastated the lives of hundreds of thousands of civilians in Burma's border areas. Although figures are unreliable, between 600,000 and one million people are estimated internally displaced in Burma because of the military regime's brutal policies to control border areas populated by ethnic minorities.
A la fin du mois de mai dernier, des vents à plus de 160km/h ont ravagé le Nord Ouest de la Birmanie, provoquant inondations et montées des eaux en particulier dans 5 villes* de l'Etat de Rakhine . Face au problème de la contamination des eaux, les équipes d'Action contre la Faim -présentes dans cette région depuis 1994-, ont lancé en urgence un programme de prévention des risques d'épidémies.

State Dept. calls for legitimate and representative reform process
The United States regrets that the Burmese military regime has failed to create conditions that would make it possible for all representatives of Burma's democratic opposition and all ethnic groups to participate in the country's constitutional convention, according to a May 21 statement released by the U.S. Department of State. The national convention opened May 17 in Rangoon.
The statement noted growing international support for democratic reform and national reconciliation in Burma, and renewed the U.S.
