Why no reports from Burma?

If you look at a map of Southeast Asia, Myanmar (Burma) should have been right in the path of the tsunami that devastated the area last week. However, the government of Myanmar has refused any aid, and is reporting minimal casualties.

Ethan Zuckerman has written a fascinating post, describing the likely impact the tragedy had on Burma, and possible reasons why the Myanmar government is covering it up. Sad to see such tragedy compounded by the power-mad avarice of the Burmese despots.
