Burma's military government is denying allegations that it shut down a news magazine.
The international media rights group Reporters Without Borders said earlier this week that Burma's censorship bureau shut down the privately-owned Khit-Sann earlier this month for being, as the group put it, too pro-American.
Burma's military government insists the magazine stopped publishing because offinancial problems.
Reporters Without Borders says Khit-Sann was published since August, 2003, and was popular with young people and intellectuals in Burma.
