Suu Kyi to head Monywa investigation

2 Dec 2012

The news was confirmed in Burma’s state-run media.

The move comes after riot police moved in on Thursday to clear protesters 
from the site using batons, water cannons, tear gas, smoke bombs and, allegedly, 
some incendiary devices. At least 50 people were injured, including more 
than 20 Buddhist monks. Scenes and images from Monywa Hospital of burned 
monks in scolded robes quickly appeared in social media and drew condemnation 
from around the world.
