23 members of KKO splinter group of Saw Hsan Aung are seen after they returned to the legal fold.

Twenty-three members of the Klohtoobaw Karen Organization (KKO) splinter group of Saw Hsan Aung returned to the legal fold bringing along with them arms and ammunition to Hlaingbwe Township, Kayin State, yesterday.
The group led by Soe Soe contacted the Tatmadaw column performing area clearance operation at 10 am yesterday. They brought eight assorted weapons, 149 rounds of bullets, eight magazines, three bombs and seven mines. They were warmly welcomed by officials concerned from the local Tatmadaw column.
They said they did not accept the attitudes of the Saw Hsan Aung splinter group, that wanted them to live peacefully abandoning the armed line, that they had come to realise true attitudes of the government and Tatmadaw towards the indigenous people and that, they, therefore, returned to the legal side, it is learnt.
