NEW BERN, N.C. (AP) - A neighbor attacked a Burmese family with a knife, stabbing to death three young brothers who were ages 1, 5 and 12, a police chief said Wednesday.
The boys' mother and older sister were also wounded in the attack Tuesday night, New Bern Police Chief Toussaint Summers Jr. said.
The suspect, identified as 18-year-old Eh Lar Doh Htoo, also a Burmese immigrant, was arrested and charged. He lived near the family and knew them, but the chief didn't know any more about their relationship.
Authorities weren't sure of a motive and a language barrier is affecting the investigation.

But this is also a case of America's equally appalling Refugee Racket:
New Bern is a picturesque town of 30,000 on the water near the coast and is home to about 1,900 Burmese refugees...
Susan Husson, executive director of the Interfaith Refugee Ministry in New Bern, said the victims' family and the suspect's family likely came through her office before settling in New Bern, but she didn't know them personally. She said the first Burmese refugee came to New Bern around 1999.
