Myanmar's Karen list peace terms

Demands by ethnic rebels, locked in six-decade-long fight for autonomy, follow signing of tentative peace deal.

    Rebels from Myanmar's largest ethnic group, who have been fighting for autonomy for the last six decades, have outlined their demands for peace with the government.

    The Karen fighters' demands, which include the complete withdrawal of government troops from posts near villages that they control along the border with Thailand, came after the group signed a tentative truce last month.
