    Two former rebels in Myanmar have been reunited in their homeland for the first time since giving up their armed struggle 16 years ago.

    The twins were part of the so-called "God's Army" as child soldiers, and grew up to lead a violent struggle against Myanmar's military.

    Al Jazeera's Wayne Hay reports from Yangon.
