Two British lawmakers are urging Thailand, India and Bangladesh to stop repatriating Burmese refugees, citing continued human rights abuses in Burma.
The two lawmakers (Caroline Cox and John Bercow) are part of a Christian human rights charity group that has been investigating rights offenses in Burma.
In a report released Monday, the delegation said it has found evidence of continuing atrocities in eastern Burma by the country's military government, including incidents of rape, forced conscription of child soldiers and forced labor.
The group, which visited the region last month, urged the British government to seek stronger European Union sanctions on Burma's military junta.
It also said the United Nations Security Council should impose an arms embargo on Burma.
