                          Some mixed signals from official media

MYANMAR's official media yesterday gave democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi mixed
signals, with one newspaper saying her supporters were committing treason, while
another backed democratic principles. 

The commentaries were the first government reaction after the National League for
Democracy (NLD) party, led by Ms Suu Kyi, defied a military crackdown and held a
Sunday party congress. 

They appeared in the two Burmese-language newspapers and were written in sharply
different styles. 

The commentaries came after two days of defiant public support for Ms Suu Kyi's
democracy party. -- Reuter
