A U.S.-based human rights organization says Burma's military government is stepping up a brutal campaign against ethnic groups.
The U.S. Campaign for Burma says it has released rare photos that allegedly show Burmese men, women and children fleeing troops of the military regime.
The organization says the photos provide a window into the government's campaign against ethnic groups in Burma.
It notes the campaign has left up to one million displaced people and forced up to two million people to flee to neighboring countries.
An official with the human rights group (Stephen Dun) says Asian, American and UN leaders must quickly condemn the alleged abuses, and demand that displaced families be allowed to return to their homes in peace.
