In this Feb. 4, 2016, photo, a rebel fighter of the Shan State Army North (SSA-N) stands guard close to the front line of the fighting area in Mong Ark, in an area under the control of SSA-N in northeastern Shan state, Myanmar. Myanmar’s civil war - the longest in modern world history - hasn’t ended, even with democracy triumphant in recent elections and the winner, Aung San Suu Kyi, pledging to end hostilities between the central government and a host of autonomy-seeking ethnic minorities. Prospects for stopping the bloodshed are balanced on a knife’s edge. (AP Photo/Esther Htusan)
