THAILAND-REFUGEES/

Myanmar's ethnic Karens cross the river to Myanmar on a boat in Tha Son Yang district, Tak province near the Thai-Myanmar border February 5, 2010. Thailand suspended on Friday the forced repatriation of ethnic Karen refugees from military-ruled Myanmar, heeding calls from U.S. lawmakers and rights groups who said they faced possible death or enslavement. About 3,000 ethnic Karens entered Thailand in June, when the Myanmar regime stepped up fighting against the Karen National Union (KNU), a rebel group that has been seeking independence in the eastern hills bordering Thailand for the past 60 years.
