Burma's 'secret tunnels' leaked


Several senior Burmese military officials have been detained for leaking pictures of secret tunnels under the new capital of the country.

The images were given to the Norwegian-based TV station, Democratic Voice of Burma.

It is thought the tunnels under Nay Pyi Daw could have been built with the help of experts from North Korea.

Jonathan Head reports from Bangkok.
