Four Thousand Monks To Be Disappeared in Burma

By |

Shooting gives way to a dirty war:

About 4,000 monks have been rounded up in the past week as the military government has tried to stamp out pro-democracy protests.They are being held at a disused race course and a technical college.

Sources from a government-sponsored militia said they would soon be moved away from Rangoon.

The monks have been disrobed and shackled, the sources told BBC radio's Burmese service. There are reports that the monks are refusing to eat.
