The military junta cracked down on democracy advocates and placed opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi under house arrest after clashes in northern Burma between her supporters and a junta-sponsored group produced at least four deaths and dozens of injuries (independent reports suggested up to 70 people died). Universities across the country have been closed indefinitely because they have been the sites of pro-democracy fervor in the past. Many of Aung San Suu KyiÂ’s supporters have been arrested, her partyÂ’s offices padlocked and their phone lines cut. Some analysts speculate that Burmese students may rise in protest and unrest could erupt if the word spreads about what has happened. The government keeps tight control over the media and little is being reported internally.
