Ukraine has accused Russia of "continuing to wage a hybrid war" after a massive cyberattack. KYIV: Ukraine said Sunday it had "evidence" that Russia was behind a massive cyberattack that knocked out key government websites this past week, while Microsoft warned the hack could be far worse than first thought. Tensions are at an all-time high between Ukraine and Russia, which Kyiv accuses of having massed troops on its border ahead of a possible invasion.

This photo taken on Saturday shows Myanmar refugees, who fled a surge in violence as the military cracks down on rebel groups, rest after crossing the Moei river into Mae Sot in Tak province. Hundreds of monks fled two major towns in Myanmar, a witness said on Sunday. (AFP) Hundreds of monks fled two major towns in Myanmar, a witness said Sunday, among thousands recently displaced by intense fighting between the military and rebel groups opposed to last year's coup. A military power-grab 11 months ago expelled civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi's government with mass protests and subsequent crackdowns killing more than 1,400 -- as dozens of rebel groups sprang up to oppose the regime. Loikaw town -- in eastern Myanmar's Kayah state -- saw intense fighting last week and the United Nations estimates that almost 90,000 people have fled, with local NGO's placing that figure far higher at 170,000. "More than half the population of Loikaw township has been internally displaced," the … [Read more...] about Monks flee temples in eastern Myanmar amid intense fighting
