A unit of Karenni soldiers crosses the Salween river on November 06, 2022 in Kayah (Karenni) state, eastern Myanmar (Burma). Nearly three years after a military coup, resistance fighters are gaining ground as unprecedented co-operation between the shadow National Unity Government of pro-democracy politicians and ethnic armed groups is posing the biggest threat yet to the military dictatorship. A predominantly Catholic ethnic group, the Karenni have been seeking self-determination since Myanmar—then known as Burma—gained independence from the British in 1948.
