Uneasy return of villagers

After the Karen National Union and the Myanmar government signed a ceasefire agreement in April 2012, some residents returned to their villages. The photos taken on April 3 show several residents in the villages that were rebuilt in Kyaukkyi Township in Bago Region. Despite the ceasefire agreement, landmines still pose a threat to the villagers in this former war-torn area. Photos: Hong Sar/Mizzima
