HORRIBLE VIOLENCE IN BURMA CAUGHT ON TAPE!!
CNN aired video of the junta violently beating the democracy protesters with sticks in Burma yesterday:
(Warning- Horribly Violent)
The junta continues to hunt down democracy protesters in Rangoon. There are reports that they are hauling men from their homes in the middle of the night.
Blogger Ko Hla reported: We heard that 17 trucks full loaded with people left InnSein GTI campus last night in Yangon. We do not know exactly whether those people on the trucks are monks who are forced to change to civilian clothes or the people who are arrested during the protests. Please help us to find out more about it.
A central member of the military junta in Burma is reportedly interested in seeking political asylum in Norway. The colonel is said to have defected recently, and is now hiding in the jungle among the Karen people.
He said he had defected after refusing to lead his men in an attack on the demonstrating monks.
According to Schilde, the colonel was also in charge of military intelligence in the region north of Rangoon.
If he is granted asylum in Norway, the colonel is willing to share his knowledge of the situation in Burma with the Norwegian authorities, Schilde says.
The UN Ambassador toured the country and held meetings.
He is now flying home to New York.
