1 of 2 Brothers Who Led Rebel Force Surrenders

From Times Wire Reports

One of the twin brothers who led a small band of ethnic Karen rebels called “God’s Army” has turned himself in to Myanmar’s military government, state radio and television reported.

Johnny Htoo and eight fellow members of the group left a refugee camp in Thailand this month and surrendered with weapons in two separate groups on July 17 and 19 in southeastern Myanmar, the reports said.

Johnny and brother Luther in the late 1990s led a band of Karen rebels in eastern Myanmar.
