American Samizdat

Friday, October 12, 2007. *

In the tumultuous days of the much-talked-about protest by Buddhist monks, in Burma the military junta had 5 generals and over 400 soldiers arrested who had refused to open fire on those taking part in the marches.

This was told to the Indonesian daily Jakarta Oost by a high-ranking functionary of the regime who requested anonymity. "Five generals refused and were rapidly arrested," said the source, who did not want to give the names of the soldiers arrested.

The same happened to "almost 400 soldiers from the Sikai division near the city of Mandalay, who did not want to shoot at the monks."
