Rumbles in Rakhine amid strains between Myanmar military, rebels (Kyaw Hsan Hlaing, Al Jazeera)

But recent skirmishes have raised concern that an informal ceasefire agreed in the long-troubled area in November last year is starting to break down, even as armed rebellion surges in other parts of the country.
