Mandalay Crawling with Troops


All over Mandalay, there are security forces, and arrests are still being carried out.

A resident said that soldiers are present in every street in downtown, and there are military vehicles carrying automatic weapons.

"The vehicles patrolling have large weapons that we don’t usually get to see. They patrol every part of town with these things.

A town south of Mandalay, Amrapura, is also said to be under the careful watch of junta, and all monasteries are being guarded by troops from Battalions 33 and 99.

However, the monks and residents of Mandalay are still preparing to stage protests should there be any opportunities, according to a local source.
