Amid all the good news…

News from Burma has been astoundingly good for the most part in recent months. Despite the military government’s continuing war on some ethnic minorities, liberalisation, the freedom of Aung San Suu Kyi and other political prisoners and peace talks between the government and some ethnic groups (notably the KNU) suggested an opening to a happier future.

However, rivalries and disagreements among the leadership of the KNU and KNLA suggest the possibility of a darker turn. Please pray that peace and loyalty to their people may sway hot heads at this time.
