Bush steps in amid threat of a crackdown on Burma protestors

From VOA:
President Bush is expected to announce new sanctions against Burma as officials there threaten legal action against Buddhist monks leading the country's largest anti-government protests in nearly 20 years.

White House officials say Mr. Bush will announce additional sanctions against key leaders of the Burmese regime and those who provide them with financial support during a speech at the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday.
