Description/subject: "...Burma is home to one of the world's longest-running civil wars, the victims of which have overwhelmingly been civilians living in rural areas.

Hundreds of thousands of people from the Arakanese, Karen, Karenni, Mon, Shan, and other ethnic groups have sought asylum in neighboring countries, as refugees or illegal migrant workers.
