Refugees, who fled clashes along Myanmar's border with Thailand following Sunday's general elections, have been slowly returning home.
Fighting between Myanmar government troops and ethnic Karen fighters had sent at least 20,000 people fleeing into neighbouring Thailand.
The refugees, who were forced to flee to the Thai border town of Mae Sot, have now started heading back to Myanmar after the government said on Tuesday that the battles had ceased.
Marta Ortigas reports from Mae Sot.
