"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.
