5 Dead, 200+ Locked Up

BBC News has reported that midnight raids on Buddhist temples carried out by armed police has seen over 200 monks being beaten and locked up, just a day after 5 monks have been reported dead in the country’s biggest city, Yangon.

China and Russia have vetoed the UN proposal to condemn the government’s actions, with China reportedly saying that if they were to meddle in Burma’s civil affairs, that surely they should be meddling in Frances when they have protests such as the riots in Paris last year. Hardly the same situation, but you’ve gotta love the Chinese’s spin on the situation. Hopefully they will do their utmost to appease the situation anyway.
