Myanmar has all the ingredients for civil war: Cambodian foreign minister

Myanmar has “all the ingredients for civil war”, Cambodia, chair of South-east Asia’s regional bloc, has warned ahead of a visit by Prime Minister Hun Sen to the crisis-wracked country.

Myanmar has been in chaos since a coup last year, with more than 1,400 people killed in a crackdown on dissent by security forces, according to a local monitoring group.
