Myanmar: Villagers flee fighting between government and KNLA

Villagers in Karen state are fleeing renewed violence between the government and the Karen National Liberation Army.

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