Members of Burma's pro-democracy opposition have marched to a United Nations office in Rangoon to ask for help in winning the release of Burmese political prisoners.
A National League for Democracy spokesman said 20 party members marched Monday from party headquarters to U.N. Development Program offices.
Such demonstrations are rare but not unprecedented in Burma. The march coincided with the 16th anniversary of the founding of the NLD.
National League for Democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been under house arrest in Burma for more than a year. Human rights groups say Burma's military government has detained dozens of political prisoners.
