In Myanmar recently nine Buddhist monks were sentenced to two years imprisonment. Reportedly Myanmar military junta accused them of defaming the Buddhism. They were arrested by the military authorities while they were waiting at Yangon railway station on July 15th. And the monks were sent to Insein prison and sentenced them on July 16th.
According to the witness the young monks came from different places to return home and arrested before the train departed.
In all probability the young monks were arrested for going to help Nargis cyclone survivors.
Recently the Nargis cyclone hit many parts of Myanmar, with more than 138,000 people killed and more than 2 million people homeless.
