The place was near the Mo-so Village at about two kilometers north-west of Frusoe Town. The soldiers forced the people to disembark, lined-up and machine gunned them down. They then loaded the bodies onto the trucks and burned them while many were still alive and breathing. Men, women, and children: more than 40 of them.
The Myanmar Army then declared that they managed to ambush some PDF (People Defense Force) people on their way to attack the army-compound nearby and 40+ PDFs were killed in the firefight. According to the army-spokesperson General Zaw Mel-lone the vehicles caught fire and then bodies were burnt to crisp, unfortunately.
