Burmese junta sweeps away resistance in Karenni areas

In the run-up to Burma's first national elections in 20 years, BBC Newsnight's Sue Lloyd-Roberts travelled undercover in the country, posing as a tourist, to take the political temperature.

In this film she reports from the border between Eastern Burma and Thailand on how the Burmese generals are dealing with the ongoing resistance from Burma's ethnic minorities and making money at the same time.

Broadcast on Monday 8 November 2010.
