French Le Monde, Burma crisis/ AFP/

Subject: Re: French Le Monde, Burma crisis/ AFP/ No French statement 

from Dawn Star, Paris
The French national paper, Le Monde, cared only to give a few lines to 
the worsening Burmese crisis, running the AFP information as follows:

translated into english here
BURMA/ The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights , Mr. Jose Alaya Lasso, 
sent a formal protest to the Burmese junta against the arrest of dozens 
of dissidents in Rangoon, declared a UN spokesman. 

Mr. Lasso called in  the Burmese ambassador to the UN, Mr. M Aye, to 
express "his profound and strong preoccupation".

Not much, but what do you expect from the UN? -ed. UVI.net

Again, no mention in the French press of any French statement re Burma
