TWO DEAD IN BOR­DER FIGHT­ING

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

YAN­GON: Two civil­ians died yes­ter­day as fight­ing broke out in a north­ern Myan­mar town on the bor­der with China, a re­gion that has long fes­tered with de­bil­i­tat­ing eth­nic rebel in­sur­gen­cies. The lat­est clashes are another blow to civil­ian leader Aung San Suu Kyi’s hopes to forge a na­tion­wide peace agree­ment af­ter years of war in Myan­mar’s many eth­nic mi­nor­ity bor­der re­gions. Lo­cals in the town of Muse, a no­to­ri­ous hot­bed of smug­gling, re­ported that fight­ing broke out since early morn­ing but do not know which groups are in­volved. – AFP
