Soldiers in the Myanmar military have admitted to carrying out gross human rights abuses on the orders of the military.
Six soliders – who recently defected – have given rare in-depth interviews to the BBC in which they describe killing and raping civilians and the burning of villages.
The military seized power from the democratically-elected government led by Aung San Suu Kyi in a coup last year and is now trying to crush the armed civilian uprising against them.
A warning: this report contains distressing images and testimony.
