YANGON (Reuters) - Myanmar security forces sealed off Yangon's Shwedagon Pagoda on Wednesday, the starting point of more than a week of major monk-led protests against decades of military rule in the former Burma.
About 10 monks were beaten as they tried to get past riot police into the shrine, witnesses said. The atmosphere was very tense with onlookers angered by the police action.
