Video: China urges Myanmar action

Days of clashes between military and militias force thousands to flee to China.


    Fresh clashes between Myanmar troops and militias in Shan state near the border with China have resulted in the death of at least one person and forced as many as 30,000 people to flee into China.

    As a result, Beijing has issued a rare rebuke to Myanmar's military rulers, calling on them to end the violence along its border.
