A Burmese dissident group says seven students have been arrested by the Burmese military government for opposing its proposed political roadmap.
In a statement Thursday, the All Burma Federation of Student Unions (ABFSU), said the seven were arrested late last month as they were distributing pamphlets rejecting the proposal. The group said the seven students are being held at a military interrogation center.
The students' group says the regime's democracy roadmap does not represent the needs of the country. The group says the proposal, by Burma's Prime Minister, General Khin Nyunt, aims only to enhance military rule in the country.
