ASEAN Urged to Address Myanmar Rights Situation


Filipino activists urged Southeast Asia's leaders on Friday to address the human rights situation in Myanmar at their upcoming summit.

About three dozen members of the Free Burma Coalition rallied at the Singapore Embassy in Manila, chanting "Free Burma Now."

They displayed large pictures of Myanmar's detained pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi and placards urging the Association of Southeast Asian Nations to monitor and stop human rights violations in Myanmar, also called Burma.
