Myanmar rebel armies join forces

Ethnic Karen armies have united as fresh fighting erupts on Thai-Myanmar border.


    Al Jazeera has confirmed that two of Myanmar's rebel armies have joined forces, in advance of a possible crackdown by the military government.

    The move comes after thousands of civilians fled into Thailand earlier this week, after renewed fighting near the border with Thailand.
