In this photo taken on Monday, Feb. 13, 2012, a Kachin soldier guards a frontline position in Laiza, facing off against Myanmar government troops about 15 kilometers (9 miles) from the headquarters of the Kachin Independence Organization, the area controlled by the Kachin in northern Myanmar. The U.S. and Myanmar have begun negotiations for resuming a search for some 730 Americans still missing from World War II in Myanmar. Most of MIAs were airmen who went down in the country's northern Kachin State, a remote region of mountains, dense jungles and an ongoing insurgency by the Kachin fighting for autonomy from the central government. These would make any recovery effort difficult, and possibly dangerous. (AP Photo/Vincent Yu) less
