He said the council's forces were also targeting children fleeing the conflict.  "The Burmese army is now targeting children who have fled with their parents," he said. At least 100 children have been killed since last year's coup. More than 100 other children are missing. These children are the victims of the brutality of the military council. I was a victim of ruthlessness and cowardice. "  " The Human Rights Council and its member states need to work and prove to the Burmese people in more effective ways than just words. "  “I had a video call with a father in a remote part of Myanmar. He had just lost his two young daughters, aged 12 and 15, while sheltering in an IDP camp. A bomb exploded at an IDP camp where their family was sheltering. Both of his sleeping daughters died with their bodies mutilated. As a father, I am deeply saddened to hear such stories. Such cruelty, Barbaric acts continue to plague Burma. Both quantity and quality Intensity is on the rise. "  In the aftermath of the military coup, nearly a million children in Burma failed to receive regular immunizations. As a result, about 33,000 children could die this year from vaccine-preventable diseases, Tom Andrews said.  The international community has expressed concern over the actions of Burma's military leaders. He said the long-awaited situation for effective change made them feel betrayed by the international community.  At the moment, there are no men or women in Myanmar. UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights and justice urges all members of the Human Rights Council and its member states to work in a way that is more effective than verbal support for the people of Burma.
