Karen Refugee Camp in Burma

In the jungle of Eastern Burma, near the Thai border, lies Ei Tu Hta refugee camp.
Here, 4000 ethnic Karen on the run from Burmese government troops and fighting between two Karen rivalling groups have sought refuge. The camp only houses a small part of the more than 500.000 internally displaced people in Burma, most of whom are Karen.
One group of Karen has made an alliance with the Burmese generals - the other has not. The latter have steadily lost its land fighting for freedom. Many Karen are afraid that the military regime will only halt their attacks once they are in full control of Karen State.
