MYANMAR-UNREST-ETHNIC

This picture taken on January 12, 2014 shows women watching as soldiers from the Taaung National Liberation Army (TNLA), a Palaung ethnic armed group, parade to mark the 51st anniversary of the Taaung National Resistance Day at Homain, Nansan township in Myanmar's northern Shan state. The TNLA is one of a host of armed ethnic minority groups that have long fought the countryís military for greater autonomy. Myanmarís reformist government has signed peace deals with most major rebel groups since coming to power nearly three years ago, but conflicts continue to flare in some areas.
