The Burmese army's abusive treatment of convicts who are forced to serve as porters under dangerous front-line conditions constitutes war crimes, Human Rights Watch and the Karen Human Rights Group said in a joint report released today.
The report, titled "Dead Men Walking: Convict Porters on the Front Lines in Eastern Burma," details abuses against convict porters that the rights groups say shows the need for a UN inquiry into the Burmese Army's practices.
