Burma bars foreign media for election

Burma said Monday it would not allow any foreign election observers or international media into the military-ruled country for its first election in two decades.

“Regarding foreign observers coming here, our country has a lot of experience in elections,” said election comission chairman Thein Soe.

He said foreign diplomats and representatives from UN organisations based inside Burma would be allowed to observe voting in the November 7 poll.
