A Naga armed group overran the general headquarters (GHQ) of a breakaway faction in Myanmar weeks after its leaders were “expelled” according to India’s New Indian Express.

According to reports, the attack was carried out by the Yung Aung faction of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN-K) on the outfit’s Nyamlang Konyak-Niki Sumi faction on Sunday. The NSCN-K’s Yung Aung faction is made up of mostly Myanmar Nagas.

Konyak, Sumi, and another leader Starson, all of them Indian Nagas, escaped unscathed. The attackers seized arms, ammunition, and rations and took control of the GHQ the report said.
