Burma Vs Myanmar

Posted by பிரேமலதா மேல் செப்ரெம்பர் 27, 2007

As demonstrations in Burma continue to gather pace, the BBC looks at what triggered the protests, who is involved and what they could mean for the country’s military leaders.

What sparked the protests?

Burma or Myanmar?

The ruling military junta changed its name from Burma to Myanmar in 1989, a year after thousands were killed in the suppression of a popular uprising. Rangoon also became Yangon.

The change was recognised by the United Nations, and by countries such as France and Japan, but not by the United States and the UK.
