Screen showing various black and white video images of racing cars STORYLINE: A car expected to fetch a record-breaking 15 (m) million US dollars at auction was unveiled in New York City on Thursday. The German Auto Union D-Type racing car is one of only five Auto Union racers left in the world and the last one in private hands. "The Auto Union car was a high-tech product developed in the 1930s. This was a time when the development of racing cars had reached a very specific stage, technically speaking," Audi historian Thomas Erdmann told AP Television on Thursday. "The car raced in international competitions with Maserati, Bugatti, with Alfa Romeo and with Mercedes-Benz," Erdmann added. The silver racer, dubbed along with its main Mercedes-Benz competitor a "Silver Arrow" by the press at the time, won a number of Grand Prix across Europe in its day. The car evolved from a 1933 racer designed by Ferdinand Porsche. Often called "Hitler's race car" because it developed out of a car the Adolf Hitler government commissioned Porsche to design in 1933, it became a world record-breaker during Hitler's "Third Reich" dictatorship. The car was full of innovations: a V-16 4.5-litre engine placed ahead of the rear transaxle, a tube frame, an aluminium body weighing 99 pounds (44.9 kilograms), and the petrol tank located between the cockpit and the engine. The driver sat in the centre of the car, in front of the engine. The petrol tank was in the centre so that weight gain or loss as petrol was being used did not unduly impact handling. The car unveiled on Thursday in New York won the 1939 French Grand Prix. Of 20 Auto Union D-Types made, only two remain as many were destroyed during World War II or in the chaos that followed. This one survived and was taken to Russia and disassembled and studied where an American collector discovered the parts, waiting to be crushed. The parts were sent from Russia to England and the body was recreated and restored. "You've got harnessed in a three-litre V-12 twin-stage super-charged engine there, independently strung chassis, a 485-brake horsepower and over 185 miles per hour performance... 70 years ago," Rupert Banner, Director of Christie's International Motor Cars, said. The racer was in New York for two days of viewing before returning to Europe. It will be auctioned in Paris in February.

Planes parked outside terminal building 41. Various of stranded passengers inside terminal STORYLINE Europe began to emerge from a volcanic cloud on Monday, allowing limited air traffic to resume and giving hope to (m) millions of travellers stranded around the world when ash choked the jet age to a halt. Even then, however, the eruption from the Icelandic volcano that caused the five days of aviation chaos was said to be strengthening and sending more ash toward Britain, which could make it unlikely that London airports would reopen on Tuesday. Eurocontrol, the air traffic agency in Brussels, said less than one-third of flights in Europe were taking off Monday, between 8,000 and 9,000 of the continent's 28,000 scheduled flights. Officials said more would operate on Tuesday, although it wasn't immediately clear how many. Three KLM passenger planes left Schiphol airport in Amsterdam on Monday evening during daylight under visual flight rules bound for New York, Dubai and Shanghai. An Associated Press photographer saw one jet taking off into a colourful sunset, which weather officials said was pinker than normal due to the ash. Air Berlin said a plane from the Spanish island of Mallorca landed in Munich on Monday afternoon and others were expected at various airports in Germany. A plane took off for Bangkok later on Monday at Berlin's Tegel airport. Air Berlin spokesman Hans-Christoph Noack said the airline had been granted permission to fly at "3-thousand metres (9840 feet) with so-called controlled visual flight in German airspace, which we leave then to go to cruising altitude." European Union transport ministers reached a deal during a crisis videoconference to divide northern European skies into three areas: a "no-fly" zone immediately over the ash cloud; a caution zone "with some contamination" where planes can fly subject to engine checks for damage; and an open-skies zone. Starting Tuesday morning, "we should see progressively more planes start to fly," said EU Transport Commissioner Siim Kallas. The German airline Lufthansa said it would bring 50 planeloads of passengers home. But the optimism was tempered on Monday night by a statement from the British National Air Traffic Service, which said the eruption of the volcano has strengthened and a new ash cloud was spreading toward Britain. The service said airspace over some parts of England may be reopened on Tuesday afternoon but that the open zone for flights may not extend as far south as London, where the country's main airports are located. It also indicated that Scotland's airports and airspace can reopen as planned on Tuesday morning but said the situation in Northern Ireland was uncertain. Europe's aviation industry, facing losses of more than 1 (b) billion US dollars, criticised official handling of the disruption that grounded thousands of flights to and from the continent. Visual flight rules allow a pilot to fly without reference to instruments, if weather conditions are good enough so the pilot can see landmarks and avoid any other aircraft. Those flights need to be under 18,000 feet, lower than usual altitude for commercial traffic. Scientists have instruments that can both detect the presence of the ash and measure its concentration, information that can be relayed to pilots. The airlines said test flights in recent days by airlines including KLM, Lufthansa and British Airways suggested planes can fly safely despite the ash. None of the flights reported problems or damage. Airlines said the test flights showed the danger was exaggerated. But a senior Western diplomat said Monday that several NATO F-16 fighters suffered engine damage after flying through the ash. The official declined to provide more details on the military flights, except to say that glasslike deposits were found inside the planes' engines after they patrolled over European airspace. Millions (m) of travellers have been stuck since the volcano under Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull glacier begun erupting April 14 for the second time in a month, spewing a vast cloud of ash that has drifted over most of northern Europe and is now spreading west toward North America. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said about 40,000 Americans in Britain were stranded abroad, citing Louis Susman, the US Ambassador to Britain. German Transport Minister Peter Ramsauer said all planes under the "control zone" plan will be thoroughly checked once they've landed. Airports in central Europe and Scandinavia have reopened, and most of southern Europe remained clear, with Spain volunteering to be a staging-point for overseas travellers trying to get home. Infrastructure Minister Jose Blanco said Spain could to take in around 100,000 people under the new emergency plan, which focuses on trying to bring Britons home from Asia, Latin America and North America. As British schools reopened after the Easter break with empty desks and missing teachers, thanks to an estimated 150,000 Britons stranded abroad, authorities resorted to extraordinary measures. The government said it was sending three Royal Navy warships, including the aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal, across the English Channel to bring home stranded citizens. One ship was heading to Spain to pick up soldiers trying to get back to Britain after a tour of duty in Afghanistan. European officials said the disruption was worse than that caused by the September 11 attacks. Some passengers meanwhile complained of rail fares that rose suddenly and hotel rates that tripled overnight. Critics said the coordinated action among European officials came too late. The IATA accused European governments of offering "no risk assessment, no consultation, no coordination, and no leadership." The group urged governments to more urgently "focus on how and when we can safely reopen Europe's skies", such as through more in-depth study of the ash cloud to identify safe corridors for planes. Ash and grit from volcanic eruptions can sabotage a plane in many ways: the abrasive ash can sandblast a jet's windshield, block fuel nozzles, contaminate the oil system and electronics and plug the tubes that sense airspeed. But the most immediate danger is to the engines. Melted ash can then congeal on the blades and block the normal flow of air, causing engines to shut down. The crisis caused by the volcano has hit everyone from Icelandic fisherman, unable to transport their catches abroad, to Kenyan farmers whose Europe-bound produce sits rotting in warehouses. The most immediate impact has been on airlines, already struggling because of the recession-induced travel downturn. IATA estimated the industry was losing 200 million (m) US dollars) a day. British Airways said it was losing up to 20 million pounds (30 million (m) US dollars) a day. Other airlines were also racking up huge losses.

Sheep, inside pen, whose coats are thick with ash STORYLINE: Rescue services have helped farmers living nearby Iceland's erupting Eyjafjallajokull volcano move animals indoors as ash continues to rain down on their farms and animals. On Saturday, on the western side of the Eyja mountains near the volcano, there was so much ash in the air that it was dark by noon. Driving was hazardous and the ash posed a health threat to both animals and locals. In the crucial lambing season only the new born are white - their mothers and the other sheep gained a thick coat of ash before they were moved into pens. The volcano begun erupting last Wednesday for the second time in a month. The volcano is located below a glacier so its magma is being cooled quickly, causing explosions and plumes of grit that can be catastrophic to plane engines, depending on prevailing winds, scientists say. But on Monday, scientists in Iceland offered some hope that conditions might be easing, saying the new volcanic ash plume is lower, which would pose less of a threat to commercial aircrafts in the future. Geologists saw a red glow at the bottom of the volcano, suggesting the eruption is turning to lava flow, and said there is less ice in the crater, which would reduce the plume. The drifting ash cloud kept most European airports closed for a fifth day on Monday. Hundreds of thousands of travellers have been stuck since the eruption started. Eurocontrol, the air traffic agency in Brussels, said less than one-third of flights in Europe were taking off on Monday - between 8-thousand and 9-thousand of the continent's 28-thousand scheduled flights.

STILL close of lightning striking amid the ash STORYLINE: The dramatic eruption at Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull volcano entered a new phase on Monday - producing less smoke but bubbling with lava and throwing up chunks of molten rock. It comes after dramatic still images of lighting seen amid the lava and ash erupting from the volcano's vent were captured on Sunday. Low-energy lightning is sometimes active during eruptions, arcing between particles as they exit the volcanic vent at around 100 metres (328 feet) per second. Officials moved on Monday to reassert control and end the air paralysis caused by the eruption, agreeing to let air traffic resume on a limited basis and giving hope to millions of stranded travellers. European Union transport ministers agreed during a crisis video conference to partly reopen northern Europe's skies. The agreement creates three zones - a "no fly" zone immediately over the ash cloud, a caution zone "with some contamination" where planes can fly subject to engine checks for damage and a third, open-skies zone. The easing came as the aviation industry - facing losses of more than one (b) billion US dollars - criticised the official handling of a crisis that grounded planes across the continent and sent tremors through the fragile European economy. German airline Lufthansa said it would bring 50 planeloads of passengers home and Britain announced it would reopen some of its air space over the next 24 hours.

So from a tax base to the city, it is probably about three and a half million dollar hit over the two week period." 13. Tourist bus driving by STORYLINE Stranded passengers camped out at John F Kennedy Airport in New York on Monday, as a lingering volcanic ash plume from an Icelandic volcano continued to disrupt air travel across the world. European Union transport ministers agreed on Monday during a crisis video conference to partly reopen northern Europe's skies, allowing limited air traffic to resume and giving hope to (m) millions of travellers stranded around the world. The agreement creates three zones - a "no fly" zone immediately over the ash cloud, a caution zone "with some contamination" where planes can fly subject to engine checks for damage and a third, open-skies zone. But the optimism was tempered Monday night by a statement from the British National Air Traffic Service, which said the eruption of the volcano has strengthened and a new ash cloud was spreading toward Britain. Eurocontrol, the air traffic agency in Brussels, said less than one-third of flights in Europe were taking off Monday, between 8,000 and 9,000 of the continent's 28,000 scheduled flights. In New York, hundreds of passengers have set up mini-encampments at John F Kennedy Airport brushing their teeth and hair in public bathrooms and sleeping on cots under fluorescent lights, amid the din of televisions and the public address system. "It's a bit smelly," said one stranded English passenger on Monday. "It's not too bad, everyone is really friendly, everyone is trying to help each other out." The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which runs the metropolitan area's major airports, has set up one thousand cots and blankets at JFK and Newark airports. Workers also served hot meals to the stranded, and handed out essentials such as bottled water and baby wipes, while the Red Cross and various consulates have provided some of the bedding and food. On Monday afternoon, five days into the crisis, the agency also opened trailers with a dozen showers at JFK. Some passengers made JFK their home because hotel rooms were scarce, they had gone way over budget on their New York vacations, or they just thought that staying close to the airport was the smartest thing to do. Many hotels across the city are booked to the hilt. "Last time I looked we had three rooms left and they will probably be gone in short order," said one hotel manager on Monday. However the short term accommodation gains are likely to be off set by future losses in the tourism industry as a result of the crisis. New York tourism officials estimate, that in a worst-case scenario, 160-thousand visitors could alter their trips to the city over a two-week period, beginning last Thursday. "We also believe that approximately 80 percent of all of those people will have to postpone their trip," city tourism chief George Fertitta said on Monday. "In those numbers we think there is about a 50 (m) million dollar impact," she said.

Leaders of Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, among others, joined Chavez at a military parade in Caracas featuring special forces troops that shouted "anti-imperialist special forces" while marching. "Venezuela will never again be a Yankee colony," said Chavez, who took power in 1999. The former para-troop commander, popularly known as "El Comandante," wore a formal military uniform and his trademark red beret as he ordered thousands of armed soldiers to begin marching alongside Amazonian Indians and civilians who have joined government-organised militias. Russian-made Sukhoi fighter jets roared overhead. Chavez played down Washington's concerns over Venezuela's arms purchases, saying his government isn't planning to attack anybody, but Venezuela must be prepare to defend itself from a potential aggression organised by the United States. The military parade preceded a summit of the Bolivarian Alternative for the Nations of Our America, or ALBA, a regional trade bloc aimed at boosting Latin American integration and countering US influence. The left-leaning alliance supported by Chavez is intended to offer an alternative, socialist path to integration while snubbing US-backed free-trade deals. Venezuela celebrates two dates for independence: April 19, 1810, when revolutionary-minded citizens led by independence leader Simon Bolivar, the inspiration for Chavez's "Bolivarian Revolution," decided to rule themselves until Spanish King Ferdinand, who had been unseated by France, was restored to the Spanish throne. Over a year later, on July 5, 1811, Venezuela decided for a more definitive break with its ties with the Spanish monarchy and signed its official declaration of independence, becoming the first Latin American nation to formally sever all ties with Spain. Earlier on Monday, Chavez and his guests laid flowers alongside Bolivar's tomb.

Wide of debate STORYLINE Candidates for Colombia's upcoming presidential elections held their second televised debate on Sunday evening in the capital of Bogota. The three hour discussion, broadcast by local station CARACOL TV, brought together the six candidates vying for Colombia's presidency in the May 30 elections. The candidates were asked about issues ranging from security and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) to the economy. Addressing a hot button issue in the region, moderators asked the candidates if they would repeat the decision made by current president Alvaro Uribe when he ordered the attack on a FARC camp in Ecuador's territory in March of 2008. The incident, which killed then FARC number two leader Raul Reyes, prompted a break in relations between Colombia and Ecuador, and also led neighbouring President of Venezuela Hugo Chavez to temporarily send troops to his country's border with Colombia. Leading candidate Juan Manuel Santos, Colombia's defence minister at the time of the attack, avoided answering the question directly. "Now, if you ask me, would I do it again? And would I do it in Venezuela? I think it would be irresponsible on my part (to answer that question) because it is a hypothetical question for a yes or no answer," he said. "I think we should be cautious, especially because of the current state of our relationship with Venezuela," Santos added. Santos, 58, running for Uribe's U Party, is currently leading the polls. Green Party candidate Antanas Mockus, who has long shunned Colombia's traditional, corruption-tainted political parties, assured he would not have carried out the attack. The 58-year-old mathematician has over the last weeks rocketed in the polls from nowhere to second place. Recent surveys had placed former Foreign Minister Noemi Sanin in second or third place.

Various of Valero training 6. Valero being interviewed 7. Tilt up of Valero training STORYLINE: Former Venezuelan boxing champion Edwin Valero was found dead in his jail cell on Monday with police claiming he had hanged himself after being arrested over his wife's murder. The former lightweight champion used his own clothes to hang himself from a bar in his cell early Monday, Venezuelan Federal Police Chief Wilmer Flores told reporters. He said Valero was found by another inmate, who alerted authorities in the police lockup in north-central Carabobo state. Valero still showed signs of life when they took him down, but they were unable to save him and he died about 1:30 am local time (0530 GMT), Flores said. The 28-year-old was detained on Sunday on suspicion of killing his wife. Prosecutors said on Sunday night that they had planned to charge Valero in the killing. Valero was detained after police found the body of his 24-year-old wife in a hotel in Valencia. The boxer left the hotel room around dawn Sunday and allegedly told security he had killed Jennifer Viera, Flores said on Sunday. The fighter was a household name in Venezuela and had a huge image of President Chavez tattooed on his chest along with the country's yellow, blue and red flag. His all-action style and 27-0 record - all by knockouts - earned him a reputation as a tough, explosive crowd-pleaser. Venezuelans called him 'Inca,' alluding to an Indian warrior, while elsewhere he was called 'Dinamita,' or dynamite. The death is the third high-profile reported suicide of a former boxing champion in the past year. Hall of Famer Alexis Arguello, the mayor of Managua, Nicaragua, was found dead at his home last July of a gunshot wound to the chest. A few weeks later, Arturo Gatti was found strangled in the Brazilian resort town of Porto de Galinhas. Valero, a former WBA (World Boxing Association) super featherweight and WBC (World Boxing Council) lightweight champion, had been in trouble with the law before. Last month, he was charged with harassing his wife and threatening medical personnel who treated her at a hospital in the western city of Merida. Police arrested Valero following an argument with a doctor and nurse at the hospital, where his wife was being treated for a series of injuries, including a punctured lung and broken ribs. The Attorney General's Office said in a statement that Valero was detained March 25 on suspicion of assaulting his wife, but his wife told a police officer her injuries were due to a fall. When the boxer arrived moments later, he stopped Viera from speaking to the police officer, and spoke threateningly to the officer, prosecutors said in a statement. The Attorney General's Office said a prosecutor had asked a court to order Valero jailed but that the judge instead placed him under a restraining order that barred him from going near his wife, a condition he repeatedly violated. Police found three stab wounds on Viera's body, but investigators who searched the hotel rooms had yet to find the weapon used in the killing, Flores said. In the ring, Valero shot to fame when he won his first 18 fights by first-round knockout, setting a record that has since only been eclipsed by Tyrone Brunson. Valero last fought in February, stopping Antonio DeMarco in a fight in Monterrey, Mexico. He was replaced as WBC lightweight champion in February after he expressed a desire to campaign in a higher weight division, WBC president Jose Sulaiman said. Valero was involved in a motorcycle accident in 2001 that caused a cerebral haemorrhage, and because most jurisdictions refuse to license a fighter who has sustained a brain injury, he was unable to fight in the United States. The boxer wound up fighting mainly in Japan and Latin America, where he won his first title in 2006. He accused the US government of discrimination, saying his application wasn't approved because of his sympathy for Chavez. He appeared at times as a special guest at televised events hosted by Chavez and was lionised by Chavez supporters as a national hero, while some critics accused him of avoiding punishment for past problems due to close links to the government.

Wide of people carrying a coffin towards graveyard STORYLINE Two bombs, hours apart, exploded in the Pakistani city of Peshawar on Monday, killing 23 people and underscoring the reach of militants despite successive military offensives close to the Afghan border. A suicide bomber was behind the deadliest blast, which occurred just before dusk in a crowded market area. Police said the target was apparently officers watching over a rally by members of a political party against power cuts in the city. Police officers and protesters were among the 22 dead and more than 30 injured, said police chief Liaqat Ali Khan. In something of an irony, the rally was being held by the Jamat-e-Islami party, an Islamist grouping that is sympathetic to many of the goals of the Taliban and regularly criticises army operations against them. Police and two government officials blamed the Taliban for the attack. But a Jamat-e-Islami spokesman Ameer-ul-Azeem declined to do so, and instead alleged that international security agencies were behind it, the conspiracy theory of choice for right-wing Islamists in Pakistan. Another Jamat-e-Islami spokesman, Siraj ul Haq, said after a funeral service for some of the victims on Monday that it was "the responsibility of the government to control all these types of conspiracies" adding that the government was "failing to stop this". Earlier, a bomb exploded outside a school run by a police welfare foundation, killing a young boy and wounding 10 people. The school raises money to help families of police officers. The victim was a boy aged between 5 and 7. Five of the wounded were children. Taliban and al-Qaida militants based in the Afghan border region, who are fighting Pakistani police and the army, have carried out hundreds of attacks over the last three years. They have frequently targeted security forces, government officials and their supporters or family members in mosques, schools and markets, showing no concern for civilian casualties. The insurgents claim responsibility for many of the attacks, but tend not to when many ordinary Pakistanis die. Peshawar has been one of the hardest-hit cities because it lies close to the border area. Two blasts over the weekend in the nearby Kohat tribal region killed about 50 people, most of them refugees lining up to register for food and other aid.

A whistle blows, and they scramble to their knees, pulling the pins from imaginary grenades before lobbing them. Dropping flat, they yell "Boom!" At a camp alongside a river, the next generation of soldiers in the Kachin Independence Army (KIA), one of Myanmar's largest armed ethnic groups, is training with a new urgency. A cease-fire is in peril, and the Kachin do not want to patrol the border for the ruling junta. The possibility of armed conflict in Myanmar, also known as Burma, is rising because a series of cease-fire agreements between the military government and more than a dozen armed ethnic groups are dissolving as the regime seeks to press those groups into becoming a border militia under government control. The government has set a deadline of April 28 for the armed groups to merge or disarm as the junta tightens its grip on the country ahead of this year's nationwide elections - the first in two decades. Their demands have largely been met with resistance during negotiations over the past year with the country's largest armed ethnic groups, including the 8,000-member Kachin army. Myanmar's government, run by ethnic Burmese who make up the majority, is well known for repressing its own people. Considered among the world's most brutal, the regime accepts no dissent and has been accused of large-scale violations of human rights, including the several years of detention of Nobel Peace laureate and democracy icon, Aung San Suu Kyi. In the country's hinterlands - home to a variety of ethnic minority groups - the junta has also faced bitter opposition from the Wa, the Shan, the Karen and the Kachin, who are united in their resentment against historical domination by the Burmese. The Karen and the Shan, who have refused to sign truces, are engaged in intense fighting with government troops. These groups control large territories along the northern and eastern borders - along with the valuable trade in logging, jade, gems, gold, and, in some cases, illegal drugs, that have helped finance their insurgencies. The Kachin, predominantly Christian hill tribes in the northernmost part of Myanmar, have been engaged in a decades-long struggle against the government for autonomy. Since a cease-fire was signed in 1994, they have enjoyed de-facto self-rule: In the rebel-controlled area, the Kachin army powers the electric grid and runs hospitals while soldiers in green uniforms adorned with the Kachin flag monitor both the border with China and the frontier with government-controlled Myanmar. But Kachin leaders are still hoping for a permanent solution. In the interim, they have rebuilt their army and their strength. Over the weekend, the Kachin army and its political arm, the Kachin Independence Organisation, adamantly rejected the government's border guard proposal at a mass public meeting held in the small town of Laiza, a rebel stronghold near the Chinese border. Pulling up in trucks, motorbikes, buses and cars, more than 1,000 Kachin - many dressed in traditional headscarves and sarong-like longyi - packed into a large assembly hall. An overflow crowd watched intently on television monitors set up in a second room. From the start, the rebel leaders were careful to say their stand reflects the views of the majority of Kachin people, estimated at one (m) million in Myanmar. Many in the audience nodded in agreement as their leaders outlined the political stalemate after more than a dozen talks with government leaders over the past 12 months. "If they take the military way, it will be a big mistake for them," General S. Gun Maw, vice chief of staff for the Kachin Independence Army said. The gathering was also intended to make a rare appeal for international attention and a small group of foreign journalists, including The Associated Press, were invited to attend. One local businesswoman in Laiza said the Kachin were prepared for confrontation. "If we need to fight, we have to," Zing Hang Khawn Hpang said. The remote and mountainous Kachin region has largely been off-limits to foreigners for years. In Laiza, a border town of 10,000 nestled in a valley between green hills, the standard of living is better than in other impoverished areas of Myanmar. Control over two small hydroelectric dams, built with Chinese help, provide the area with 24-hour electricity - by comparison, residents in the largest Burmese city, Yangon, only get a few hours of power every third day. Chinese telecommunications towers just over the border ensure steady cell phone service, while brisk commercial trade means a steady supply of Chinese goods, clothing and motorbikes displayed in storefronts on the main boulevard. On the streets, people talk openly about politics - another marked difference from the tightly controlled regions of government-run Myanmar. The stability has allowed Christianity, brought by missionaries in the 1800s, to flourish - a rare display in an otherwise heavily Buddhist nation. Though Kachin leaders are still pushing for a political solution that includes protection of ethnic rights and government-recognised self-rule, their commanders are preparing for the worst. From the Kachin army's headquarters, perched high up on the mountainside overlooking the town, they have launched a new push for training and recruitment. More ominously, the Burmese side has also stepped up its military activities. Kachin residents report army convoys rumbling through the northern countryside in recent weeks near the regional capital of Myitkyina, which is under government control. But any fighting in northern Myanmar would surely provoke China, the junta's biggest political ally, which has warned the government to guard against instability on its borders. Last summer, heavy fighting between troops and the Kokang ethnic group sent some 30,000 refugees across the border into China, prompting a rare reprimand from Beijing. The Chinese leadership is in a bind, caught between its dislike of border instability and its access to the oil, natural gas, and timber that the junta provides. That makes it hard to divine how deeply Beijing will involve itself.
