The attacks come at a time when foreign ministers of Southeast Asian countries are scheduled to hold a special meeting in Indonesia to discuss the widespread violence in Myanmar. The airstrikes at Sunday night’s ceremony were the first time since a military coup in February last year that such a large number of people were killed in a single attack. It is impossible to definitively confirm the details of the incident. (60 Killed in Airstrikes in Myanmar)

However, there was no immediate reaction from the state media. The UN office in Myanmar said in a statement that it was deeply concerned and saddened by the news of the airstrike. The use of force by security forces against unarmed civilians is unacceptable and those responsible must be held accountable, the statement said. (60 Killed in Airstrikes in Myanmar)

Demands for autonomy by ethnic minorities in Myanmar have been suppressed for decades. The 62nd anniversary of the founding of the Kachin Independence Organization was being celebrated on Sunday at the site, which is also used by the Kachin Military Branch for military training. It is located in the Hapkant region, about 950 km from Yangon, the largest city in Myanmar.
