Buddhist Monks Defy Assembly Ban
Wednesday September 26, 2007 8:46 AM

YANGON, Myanmar (AP) - Thousands of Buddhist monks and pro-democracy activists marched toward the center of Yangon Wednesday in defiance of the militarygovernment's ban on public assembly.

The march followed a tense confrontation at the city's famed Shwedagon Pagoda between the protesters and riot police who fired warning shots, beat some monks and dragged others away into waiting trucks.
