Myanmar police arrest dozens of protesters, monks - witnesses

YANGON (Thomson Financial) - Myanmar police arrested dozens of protesters, including some monks, as they tried to join an anti-government march Wednesday in Yangon, witnesses said.


Police shoved the protesters and the monks into three trucks, stopping them from joining a march led by some 200 clergy who had gathered after police had baton-charged an earlier demonstration, witnesses said.
