Burma's rebels fuel post-election fears of violence

There is growing concern about violent conflict between ethnic groups and the army following the disputed general election in Burma.

Around 25m of Burma's people belong to different ethnic groups, many with their own armies.

They have abandoned ceasefire agreements and are preparing to fight the government.

The BBC's Alistair Leithead has crossed the Thai border into Burma to meet some of the rebels who began fighting the day after the poll.
