Burma's military government has warned its people against causing unrest on the nation's upcoming Martyrs Day holiday.
The state-run New Light of Myanmar said Thursday that some democracy activists are working with so-called destructive groups to distribute leaflets and hold demonstrations to destabilize the country.
The report did not identify any specific group. But one of the nine people killed on Martyrs' Day, July 19, 1947, was General Aung San, father of pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
Aung San Suu Kyi heads the opposition National League for Democracy. She has been under house arrest for at least 10 of the past 17 years.
The government has accused terrorists and so-called "destructive elements" in Burma for explosions that took place in the capital and near the border with India earlier this year.
