Rights defenders say clashes in northern Myanmar near the China border have ramped up in recent months as the worldwide community focuses on the Rohingya crisis in the west of the country.

Human rights groups on Saturday urged Myanmar to drop charges against activists protesting military offensives in Kachin State, which borders Shan State.

The fighting erupted at Muse town yesterday in which nineteen people have been killed so far.

This story has been sourced from a third party syndicated feed, agencies. Two of the attacks occurred at military bases and the other at a bridge.

About 32 people, including 27 civilians, three policemen, and two local paramilitary troopers were injured in the attack.

Video on social media showed smoke rising above Muse's prominent trading center.

Myanmar's military frequently clashes with several groups who say they are fighting for greater autonomy for ethnic minorities in the area, through which much of Myanmar's foreign trade flows.

China's embassy in Myanmar said in a statement that the conflict had sent stray bullets into China, along with an unidentified number of people seeking refuge.

Burma is often called Myanmar, a name that military authorities adopted in 1989.

Aye Myint, a police officer in Muse, said the death toll was 19, and that Ta'ang National Liberation Army fighters used small arms as well as mortars. "This is not an ethnic rights movement, this is a terrorist attack".

He said the military would pursue the armed group.

Last year, Beijing estimated that a flare-up in violence led to more than 20,000 refugees crossing the border, while fighting in 2009 and 2015 displaced tens of thousands of people.

Reverend Hkalam Samsun, chairman of the Kachin Baptist Convention, said the Kachin people were "disappointed" with Suu Kyi.
