NDT: Burma Bars Foreign Reporters & Monitors from National Election

Burma’s military rulers say international poll monitors and foreign journalists will be barred from the country’s first election in 20 years.

The United States, Britain and Burma’s Southeast Asian neighbors have urged the military junta to allow independent election monitors at the November 7 election.

Critics say the election will actually strengthen the military's grip on power under the guise of civilian rule.
