Ritual

While Myanmar said before Obama's visit that it granted amnesty to 452 prisoners, the advocacy group Human Rights Watch said an undetermined number of political prisoners remain behind bars. Authorities released 66 more prisoners on Nov. 16, according to a statement late yesterday from Thein Sein's office.
