1/6/09 Burma (ChristianToday) Christian Solidarity Worldwide says the
recent rape and murder of a seven-year-old girl demonstrates the
"culture of impunity" reigning throughout Burma's military regime.

The girl is believed to have been shot and killed by a government
soldier in the village of Ma Oo Bin in Karen State, north Burma, on
December 27. The girl's parents and village leaders reported the case

Stuart Windsor.
