In Mandalay sporadic and brief demonstration took place by students at the intersection of 75th Street and 35th Street and again at the intersection of 77th Street and 35th Street. Students on motorcycles came holding a red flag and staged a brief demonstration. There were about 100 motorbikes and the students were between 20 to 25 years of age. We saw them on the 35th Street.

Mr. Gambari and security in Rangoon

"Mr. Gambari has arrived in Rangoon. But we did not see him being escorted. We don't know where he has been taken. But in front of Traders Hotel people are being cleared. This morning the authorities also shifted the Sule bus stop to in front of Thamada Cinema. For those bus drivers who did not realize the route change, as soon as they stopped the bus, passengers coming out of the bus were beaten up by soldiers eyewitnesses told me. The soldiers began to clear since 11 or 12 today. At Sule bus stop there are about five to six army trucks. They are in a row. Now that the rain is starting to pour, and since the passengers were beaten up, there are very few people in sight," an observer told Mizzima.
