BEIJING, Feb 10 : China's expressed concern on Tuesday about renewed fighting between Myanmar rebels and government forces which forced civilians to cross the border to seek refuge in China.
The fighting flared up in the Kokang region of northeast Myanmar's Shan State between rebels from a group called the Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army (MNDAA) and the army.
"From yesterday until today, some Myanmar border residents, because of safety considerations, entered China. They have been looked after," Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a daily news briefing, without giving a number.    
The rebels were formerly part of the Communist Party of Burma (CPB), a China-backed guerrilla force that battled the Myanmar government until the group fell apart in 1989.    ?REUTERS
