Soldiers of Shan State Army (SSA) take part in the military drill in their base near the village of Loi Tai Leng February 5, 2010. SSA is one of the rebel groups in the ethnically diverse former Burma that continues its fight for an independent Shan homeland. Yawn Serk, chairman of the Restoration Council of Shan State and the leader of SSA said his group will not take a part in army-ruled Myanmar’s election nor join its border patrol force but continue their fight for independence.
