Two military aircraft bombed Demoso township around 6 a.m. on Thursday and the convent was struck, according to local sources. The convent is next to Our Lady, Queen of Peace Catholic Church, another place of worship hit by military artillery fire last June.

In the diocese of Loikaw, in eastern Kayah State, the Tatmadaw hit at least eight churches in air strikes.
