Myanmar Riot
People shop vegetables at a local bazaar in Meikhtila, about 550 kilometers (340 miles) north of Yangon, Myanmar, Monday, March 25, 2013. Sectarian clashes between Buddhists and Muslims in Meikhtila spread to at least two other towns in the country's heartland over the weekend, undermining government efforts to quash an eruption of violence that has killed dozens of people and displaced 10,000 more. On Sunday, Vijay Nambiar, the U.N. secretary-general's special adviser on Myanmar, toured Meikhtila, where soldiers were able to impose order after several days of anarchy and called on the government to punish those responsible.
