Meanwhile Reporters without borders lay into the Burmese junta once again,

“Several other correspondents of foreign news media, including Reuters and Agence France-Presse, have been physically attacked or prevented from working during the past month,” they said.
The two organisations said they have learned from local sources that the military censorship department, known as the Press Scrutiny and Registration Division, was harassing editors to get them to bring out issues of their newspapers and magazines containing propaganda articles.
