Myanmar and Scaling up from Gaza

Jonathan Head in Yangon discovers that the military junta ruling the country, which changed its name from Burma to Myanmar, are now more willing to permit public commemorations of the 1988 popular uprisings, when thousands of demonstrators against the regime were killed.

Jon Donnison reflects on the contrast of reporting for the BBC from Gaza compared to Australia. He does the maths, bringing you the never before reported fact that Gaza would fit inside Australia 21,366 times over.
