(FILES) This file photo taken October 11, 2016 shows a rebel belonging to the Kachin Independence Army (KIA) ethnic group inspecting seized government weapons following two days of fighting with the Myanmar military near Laiza in Kachin state where rebels said they gathered 20 government firearms, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and recovered bodies of four soldiers. Thousands of people fled heavy fighting on Myanmar's northern border with China overnight, activists said on January 11, 2017, as the government blocked a senior UN official from visiting the area. / AFP PHOTO / HKUN LAT
