Myanmar's military rulers have accelerated a crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators, including the Buddhist monks who have spearheaded the daily protests. Security forces conducted overnight raids on several monasteries. As a result, far fewer monks participated in Thursday's march, giving security forces more latitude to crack down on the ordinary citizens who did show up.
