Cyclone: 22,000 Missing & Killed in Myanmar

Endless troubles in Burma. Now the cyclone.

Here, (right) monks struggle in an attempt to wade out of Yangon (Photo: AFP/Matt Davis). Aerial shots show a coast that is completed flooded. Most of the news images are of supplies being offloaded from planes. It is surprising to see any images at all with the tight control the Myanmar military junta has on the country. Maybe such devastation will change the way the country talks to the world.
