The security forces could not disperse the demonstration because of heavy rain. Ven Ashin Sobhana who is studying at the Asokayone Temple was taken to the interrogation center at around 4 pm. Later another four monks were also arrested.

The monks were marching in commemoration of the first anniversary of the Saffron Revolution led by the Buddhist monks in 2007. The Saffron Revolution was brutally crushed by the country's military government.
The current situation in Burma's Yangon is tightened security with hundreds of riot police and cars near the Sule Pagoda, a protester's gathering point.
