After less than three days in Thailand the Burmese refugees begin to return back across the Moe Me river to Burma. An estimated 20,000 had fled into Thailand to escape clashes in the border towns of Myawaddy and Pyaduangsu, only a day after a Burmese election which critics described as a sham..Ethnic minorities along the Thai-Burma border had warned earlier that the junta would launch a major offensive after the election, as many armed rebel groups had refused to become part of the government-controlled Border Guard Forces.
