Burmese monks mark Anniversary with peaceful protest

Buddhist monks in Burmese participated in a peaceful protest march in light of the anniversary of last year's pro-democracy demonstrators. Leading world powers have also gathered to urge the junta to make political reforms.

"The monks' march took the form of their morning round of begging for alms, but it is widely understood that such a large number of monks marching in an organised fashion represents a veiled protest."

"Ahead of a possible visit by UN chief Ban Ki-moon to the country by the end of the year, the first ministerial meeting on Burma by the five permanent Security Council and mostly Asian nations urged the country's military rulers to co-operate with Mr Ban's special envoy to resolve the nation's political crisis."
