CWN Editor's Note: Myanmar army troops occupied a parish church in the little town of Moebye from September 8 to 12, destroying statues and hiding anti-personnel mines in the building before they left.

A parish priest told the Fides news service, “The soldiers chose the church as their base because they knew that they young people would not attack them—that is, out of opportunism and to save themselves.”
