State of emergency, military administrative order extended in Kokang

The President Office released two ordinances Tuesday to extend a state of emergency and a Military Administrative Order in Shan State’s Kokang self-administered zone until 17 November.
The region remains unable to return to normalcy in terms of administration, peace and tranquility and rule of law, according to the ordinance.
The new ordinance will last for 90 days and continues the state of emergency imposed under a prior ordinance that expired on Monday.
The initial declaration of the state of emergency was made on 17 February after the region was plunged into instability following attacks by Kokang rebels earlier that month.
