Myanmar update

BANGKOK: The streets of major cities in Myanmar appeared quiet Thursday, a day after a small group of monks led a protest march through the central Burmese city of Pakokku. But the arrival of the United Nations special envoy, Ibrahim Gambari, in Myanmar on Saturday may spur further protests, analysts and dissidents said.

About 100-200 monks protested yesterday, the first sign of defiance since the crackdown on demonstrators in September.
