Myanmar: Villagers flee fighting between government and KNLA

Villagers are being forced to hide in the jungle to escape fighting between government troops and rebels in southern eastern Myanmar.

The Karen National Liberation Army has fought a 60 year war for independence.

The government has started a peace process, but it’s struggling to hold together.
