News Update

Participants of yesterday's protest near Shwedagon now claimed the burnings of motorcycles were not done by the public. One protesters said "They burned the motorcycles themselves and put the blame on us. We didn't do it."

Much of the confrontations was caught by one citizen and now available on DVB. The world could see how the soldiers stripped off the monks' robes, kicked and beat. Police were seen firing tear gas into near by monastery and throwing rocks into the compound for many minutes.
