UN: Myanmar junta raises crackdown toll to 15
Myanmar's military government has acknowledged that at least 15 people were killed in September's crackdown on the biggest democracy protests in nearly 20 years, UN human rights envoy Paulo Sergio Pinheiro said on Friday.
"This number is only for Yangon," Pinheiro told a news conference in Bangkok after a five-day trip to Myanmar to get to the bottom of the crackdown. "I'm not in a position to say whether this is an accurate number." (Reuters)
