Myanmar gives Thailand OK to kill ethnic Karen troops

BANGKOK, April 9 Kyodo

   Myanmar's junta has told Thailand that the Democratic Karen Buddhist 
Army (DKBA) is an illegal organization, and it has given Thailand a green

light to arrest and execute DKBA soldiers who launch raids on Thai soil, 
the Thai Foreign Ministry said Thursday.
   The ministry, in a statement, quoted the junta as saying it does not 
control the Karen rebels, who have launched a series of cross-border 
attacks on refugee camps controlled by a rival Karen group.
