Geography: Burma

I came across an article about Buddhist monks protesting and being arrested. The article mentions a previous incident, in 1988, where students protested and thousands were shot at. I wondered if this was taking place in China, but the place mentioned was Myanmar, so I decided to look it up.

Also known as, the Union of Myanmar, Burma is bordered by China, India, Thailand, and Laos. It is ruled by a "military junta". The monks and thousands of others have been protesting the oppression by the government.
