Recent from The Telegraph:
The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Myanmar: Fierce clashes break out on border with Thailand after guerillas capture army outpost” – below is their description.
Armed clashes broke out near Myanmar’s border with Thailand on Tuesday morning between ethnic minority Karen insurgents and junta forces, in some of the fiercest conflict seen since the February 1 coup.
Karen guerrillas said they had captured a Myanmar army outpost after heavy fighting in response to a bloody junta crackdown on pro-democracy protesters and ethnic minorities that has plunged the nation into crisis and reignited tensions between periphery states and the military.
In recent weeks, the regime has bombed Karen villages, forcing up to 25,000 to either seek refuge in Thailand or to hide in the surrounding jungle, according to local aid group the Free Burma Rangers.
