Myanmar Introduction

Myanmar or Burma is a country in Southeast Asia. It lies along the Bay of Bengal. Mountains border Burma on the west, north, and east. They enclose the Irrawaddy River Valley.

The Irrawaddy River empties into the Bay of Bengal through many mouths, forming a large delta. Rangoon, Burma's capital and largest city, lies on this delta.

A Short Background

Despite multiparty elections in 1990 that resulted in the main opposition party winning a decisive victory, the military junta ruling the country refused to hand over power.

Key opposition leader and Nobel Peace Prize recipient AUNG San Suu Kyi, under house arrest from 1989 to 1995, was again placed under house detention in September 2000; her supporters are routinely harassed or jailed.
