    Video was released this week by a group calling themselves the new fighting force against Myanmar’s military junta, with footage showing more than 100 youth jogging through a clearing earlier this month as they appeared to train with ethnic armies on Myanmar’s borderlands.

    Reuters reports they could not independently verify the details of the make-up of the recently formed group.

    Also on Tuesday, video purported to show fires burning and shots heard as insurgents from the ethnic minority Karen reportedly attacked a Myanmar military outpost.

    In Yangon, protesters took to the streets chanting slogans and holding signs in opposition to the military junta.
