From here.

Thousands of protesters are dead and the bodies of hundreds of executed monks have been dumped in the jungle, a former intelligence officer for Burma's ruling junta has revealed.

The most senior official to defect so far, Hla Win, said: "Many more people have been killed in recent days than you've heard about. The bodies can be counted in several thousand."

And not only were these Buddhist monks murdered and dumped into mass-graves, but it was done under cover, and after the government had cut off the Internet. The government imposed a curfew under the guise of "maintaining order," but its actual purpose was so that the bodies of Buddhist monks could be removed from their monasteries and dumped elsewhere.

The BBC's latest article says that 10 people have been killed so far.

The New York Times has yet to say anything about this particular atrocity.

And right now, the most-read article on CNN.com is Britney Spears losing custody of her children.

What the fuck is the matter with people?

EDIT: The BBC reports with everything it can verify.
Sylvester Stallone and those filming a "Rambo" sequel encounter evidence of the atrocities on the Myanmar border.
