Burma has been accused of "serious abuses" against the ethnic Kachin people in a report by the US campaign group Human Rights Watch.

HRW said that the government has blocked humanitarian aid to those displaced by fighting in the northern Kachin state since June 2011.

It said 75,000 civilians and refugees need food, shelter and medicine.

Burma's government, which has made steps toward reforms, has not yet commented.
