BBC: Fighting continues in Burma despite ceasefire

Fighting continues in Burma despite ceasefire (click to view article)

Fighting is continuing in Burma between the Burmese army and Kachin rebels in the north despite a ceasefire being struck last week.

There are growing international calls for an end to the violence.

Most of the fighting has centred around Laiza, where the Kachin state headquarters are based, and from where the BBC's East Asia correspondent Jonathan Head has just returned.
