Five monks arrested in Rangoon following protests

14 Dec 2012

A rally scheduled for Friday afternoon in Rangoon was cancelled after police 
arrested five Buddhist monks the night before, accusing them of involvement 
in a demonstration on Wednesday when activists and monks marched through 
the streets of the former capital to protest a police crackdown at a controversial 
copper mining project in Sagaing Division.
