Burma's military government has rejected a last week's U.S. report on human rights, calling it "riddled with errors."
The U.S. State Department said in its annual report on the state of human rights worldwide that the situation worsened in Burma during 2003.
The report cites a May 30th attack by a pro-government mob against opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi that left an unknown number of people dead and led to a crackdown of her National League for Democracy.
Burma's ruling military issued a statement today (Saturday) saying that Washington has lost its credibility on human rights, citing alleged abuses by the United States in its global war on terror.
