YANGON (Thomson Financial) - The headquarters of Aung San Suu Kyi's opposition party is under guard by riot police Wednesday as the ruling junta rolled out a heavy security presence to stifle mass demonstrations. |
Witnesses said that a covered police truck, with some 30 armed riot police sitting inside, stood 100 meters from the National League for Democracy (NLD) headquarters in central Yangon.
About 30 members of the party were waiting outside the building, apparently ready to join any fresh protests despite stiff government warnings against a new public display of defiance against the regime
