US embassy raises alarm at fighting in northern Myanmar

Heavy bouts of fighting broke out last week in Shan state between two ethnic rebel groups in the region, the Restoration Council for Shan State (RCSS) and the Ta’ang National Liberation Army (TNLA). The flare-up of violence comes during a complicated political transition from an army-backed government to Aung San Suu Kyi’s pro-democracy party, which dominated historic polls last year.
