distressing news from Burma

REceived this terrible ccount (I have removed email addresses)

We just got phone call with our sister living in Yangon about a > few hours ago.>> We saw on BBC world, saying that 200 monks were arrested. The true> picture is far worse!!!!!!!!!>> For one instance, the monastery at an obscure neighborhood of > Yangon, called Ngwe Kyar Yan (on Wei-za-yan-tar Road, Yangon) had> been raided early this morning.>> A troop of lone-tein (riot police comprised of paid thugs) protected> by the military trucks, raided the monastery with 200 studying monks. They systematically ordered all the monks to line up and> banged and crushed each one's head against the brick wall of the> monastery. One by one, the peaceful, non resisting monks, fell to the ground, screaming in pain. Then, they tore off the red robes and threw them all in the military trucks (like rice bags) and took the bodies away. The head monk of the monastery, was tied up in the middle of the monastery, tortured , bludgeoned, and later died the same day, today. Tens of thousands of people gathered outside the monastery, warded off by troops with bayoneted rifles, unable to help their > helpless monks being slaughtered inside the monastery. Their every> try to forge ahead was met with the bayonets. When all is done, only 10 out of 200 remained alive, hiding in the monastery. Blood stained everywhere on the walls and floors of the> monastery. Please tell your audience of the full extent of the fate of the monks please please !!!!!!!!!!!! 'Arrested' is not enough expression. They have been bludgeoned to death !!!!!!
