Myanmar News:A number of people have been killed and about 10,000 refugees have fled from Burma into Thailand as a result of the fighting between ethnic rebels and the Burmese military.

As vote counting gets underway, violence has spread to near Burma's Three Pagodas Pass in the country's south, as well as the border town of Myawaddy.

Those fleeing the fighting are being sheltered in the town of Mae Sot on the Thai side of the border.

The Friendship Bridge between the two countries has been closed.

NGOs are providing food and water to the refugees and Thai authorities say they are expecting more to arrive.

Earlier, a market in Myawaddy was hit with mortar rounds, killing three people.

A wayward grenade also struck on the Thai side of the border where a riverbank has now been evacuated.
