Security forces cracked down on protesters occupying a copper mine early Thursday in Monywa, northwestern Myanmar (Burma), using water cannons and other devices to break up the rally hours before opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi was expected. Activists said at least 50 people had been injured and 23 were in hospital, some suffering burns after incendiary devices were hurled into their camps by police. The mine is a joint venture between the Chinese firm and a company controlled by Myanmar’s military.
