A rights group says Burma's military continues to use rape as a weapon to intimidate ethnic minorities in the country.
The Women's League of Burma says many women and girls in all Burmese ethnic states, as well as central Burma, have been raped by Burmese military personnel over the last two years.
The group says most of the rapes were committed or approved by senior Burmese military officials and authorities.
Burma's military government has long dismissed claims that its soldiers use rape as a weapon.
