Junta to confiscate houses at eastern gate of Shwedagon

Source: Mizzima News

The Burmese military junta will soon confiscate houses near the eastern gate of Burma's most famous Buddhist shrine, Shwedagon Pagoda, and relocate residents, a monk in Rangoon said.

The Monk, who requested anonymity for fear of reprisal, said the junta has decided to empty the area, east of Shwedagon, and clear all residents, as many of the residences reportedly supported the monk-led protests in September.
