The United Nations General Assembly has again adopted a resolution denouncing continuing human rights violations in Burma.
The resolution, which followed a report Friday from a U.N. special investigator, calls on the military junta in Rangoon to end the "systematic violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms," especially against minorities.
It also called on Burmese military rulers to end military operations targeting civilians, and to cease torture and the recruitment of child soldiers.
The General Assembly adopted a similar resolution last year. But the Associated Press quotes a leading human rights group, the Thailand-Burma Border Consortium, as saying government violence has driven more than 80 000 additional people from their homes this year alone.
