Anniversaries come and go. Another one has been passed in Burma – it’s over one year since Burma signed the Additional Protocol to its Nuclear Safeguards Agreement with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

The signing was hailed as proof that Burma was ready at last to cooperate in opening its nuclear activities to inspection.

Myanmar President Thein Sein has denied that minority Muslim Rohingya are fleeing "torture" in western Rakhine state, telling the Voice of America Burmese Service such media reports were fabrication. According to the Arakan Project, which plots migration across the Bay of Bengal, about 100,000 Rohingya have left Rakhine since 2012. Violent clashes with ethnic Rakhine Buddhists that year killed hundreds and left 140,000 homeless, most of them Rohingya. Some Rohingya, as Reuters reported last year, are held for ransom by trafficking gangs at jungle camps in Thailand until relatives pay to secure their release.
